This is really bad and ruthless poachers are hunting the lions only for the sake of money they rather engage themselves to earn money in constructive way. The culprit should be punished with death by feeding to the king no other punishment for poaching. As far as my knowledge goes punishment to the poachers is fine of Rs. 1 lac or 1 year imprisonment this is not the value of the king.
