Poaching: It's What's For Dinner

If you haven't yet figured out how to feed your family in the current hard times, well, via The Independent, here's one solution: "Police in rural areas across Britain are reporting a dramatic increase in poaching, as the rise in food prices and the reality of recession increases the temptation to deal in stolen venison, salmon, or rarer meat and fish." These poachers are not a bunch of Davy Crocketts, but rather organized into armed gangs that intimidate local residents and trespass onto private property. "Poaching is particularly common on the urban fringes," said a Scottish spokesperson. "It's idiots going out into the country with guns, or crossbows."
