Why Some People Think Pangolin Should be Killed


Some people think that Pangolin should be killed because China needs the pangolin scales for medicine, and you can't get scales of a living animal. People believe that pangolin scales can cure cancer and other diseases.

Pangolins Must be Saved

Then again, if we kill all the pangolin how will we get medicine? We need to find a way to get the medicine without killing/hurting the pangolin. It's still dying from trafficking and from people poaching for their scales.
