It’s a creature from a bygone age, older than mankind itself. Greed and corruption, myth and superstition, had brought the rhino to the brink of extinction.
For millenia its best protection, the rhino’s horn is now its worst enemy. If the killing doesn’t stop than the last rhino in the wild could disappear in just a few years.

These days rhino poachers come by a helicopter armed with powerful tranquilizers and a chainsaw. The cruelty of the attack is just breathtaking. A philosopher once said that we can judge the hearth of a man by his treatment of animals. If so what kind of men are doing this?

In 2010 more than 300 rhinos were killed for their horns. With acts of such heartless cruelty taking place every day now, that annual total will almost double in 2012. It amounts to the wholesale slaughter of one of this continent’s most praised natural assets, by means both crude and sophisticated.

    leaving the rhinos alone? how about leaving the chickens and pigs alone? or is it okay to breed and slaughter those animals in the masses because they are a part of your diet?

    im not even going to argue whether this is right or wrong, because is a matter of perspective. some times species go extinct to predators other than humans, one can argue that it is part of nature and evolution.

    simply pointing out the fact that a rich man with his sights set on a rhino will get what he wants.

    it is cruel to saw off half of that rhino’s face. but so is a lion chewing on a deer’s intestines while the deer is still alive.

    humans might have gone too far, but nature will eventually fight back.

    dont feel sorry for the rhinos, one day itll be us.

    so its all good.

      except a lion is feeding on a deer because it is a necessity; furthermore, deer are not on the brink of extinction because of lions. Obtaining a rhino horn is not.
