There was, a few years back, an article, on TV, on game wardens in Africa. Who for a long time were not even allowed rifles as they were told that might give poachers a reason to shoot at them but they were being killed by poachers often.
That stopped when at least several countries, armed their wardens and gave a shoot first and ask question later order against poachers.
IIRC, one reason things changed was White hunters who paid big bucks to be there had come into armed conflict when hunting and they came upon armed poachers.
The government did not want to lose money when hunters were not going to go into the equivalent of a war zone where if they shot back, they would face misery in court.
