Not good at all. We are here and the animals are here. The time where we needed animals to eat and survive was gone looooong time ago. Parts of animals for personal use Is even worse. Again....., we both live here, make It equal...........

making dagger handles out of the rhino horns seems a weak excuse for killing the big beast.

Of course the rhinos are dying because of $$$. Whether it's the poachers making a buck selling the horns to Asia, or the rich hunting for pleasure, it all revolves around the money. SAD.
