Humans have been hunting wildlife for subsistence for thousands of years. But today hunting technology has improved with guns, steal snares, and flashlights making it easier to hunt more wildlife more quickly. Improved roads means that hunters can more easily access forested areas and traders can send wild meat to markets before spoiling. Hunters for the trade can set hundreds of snares and stay in the forest for more than month. They carry a bag of rice into the forest and carry out several bags of wildlife to sell. Not all hunters involved in illegal wildlife trade are Lao citizens. Some come from neighboring countries. If hunting and trade are not controlled through law enforcement, it will eventually eliminate most wildlife in Laos.
