Poaching is horrible, and all poachers should be killed on sight.

The following link is a lovely and very necessary project that is being put into place to prevent poaching against rhinos in Africa, however they have a deadline in order to collect all the necessary funds, so please donate - even a small amount will make a difference!! Plus each donation comes with a gift sent to you depending on the amount!

I still think that if all Rhinos had there horns poisoned it would soon scare the users off and cut the demand once the users start dying. Experiments have been carried out in South Africa at private Reserves and the Rhinos were not affected at all.

Heavy bounty for each poacher body brought in, repaid in part by the cash fines levied on those poachers only wounded.

Dry up the market and customers like supermode Elle MacPherson will disappear (in answer to Fred L comment).

Poachers deserve to have their hands chopped off, an eye for an eye!!

Poaching of any animal needs to be stopped. Very lengthy jail time or very heavy fines should be imposed. i dont condone shooting poachers which is kinda hypocritical.
