Well ... I think it’s good no matter how you view it. You are “spot on” with the poaching of elk. It still “damages the resources”.

The difference is how permanent the damage to the resource is. Also, humans have a much higher capacity to do damage to the resource which is why an example needs to be set...Honestly, I think the penalty should have been higher.
