Smokin’ Hot “Amazon” and Former Afghanistan Vet is Fighting Poachers in Africa



Kinessa Johnson, now retired from the US army, decided to continue on doing what she does best. However, instead of fighting terrorists in the Middle East, she decided to join up with the “Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife” and train park rangers over there on how to fighting poachers, apprehend them and minimize the risk on both human and animal life.

She joined the organization last November and is now stationed near Arusha in Tanzania. In an interview she said that:

“Our intention is not to harm anyone; we’re here to train park rangers so they can track and detain poachers and ultimately prevent poaching.

Most of the time, anyone that is in a reserve with a weapon is considered a threat and can be shot if rangers feel threatened.

Our goal is to prevent trigger pulling through strategic movements and methods of prevention.”
