The game ranger with a rifle slung across his shoulders follows a bush trail through South Africa's famed Kruger national park, alert to the slightest sound or movement. He faces threats not only from lions and elephants but from human beings -- heavily-armed poachers who stalk the park's wilderness day and night.
