A pity they are not equipped with an appropriate weapon to take on poachers or deal with dangerous game. A single shot 12gg old shotgun is not the tool for the task. It does not have the required stopping power over the distance required on encountering poachers and reloading capabilities are far too slow in an active attack or gunfight by possibly AK47/R4 assault rifle or even a large calibre bolt action rifle which is most often used. Will also definitely not stop any attack from dangerous game.

This is typical of SA setup with ill equipped, mostly untrained youngsters desperate for work and not having the knowledge to understand when they actually place themselves in far greater danger than they realise. It is criminal for any organisation/reserve to allow persons to work in conditions with no adequate protection and unduly endangering their lives.
