Sickening! -- Perhaps it is time to educate the next bunch of Rangers and the Asians who actually believe that Rhino horn is an aphrodisiac?

This is all about profit, if we can manage to remove the market from the horn, the killing will stop.

There is a pledge within the article.

Again, I read this in another posting. The idea that these poachers wer assisted, makes this all the more tragic.

Vermin! May they bury all their descendants and perish while hyenas are eating their private parts.

Noted, tweeted, shared, signed all petitions on site. Tweeted and shared. Did it again, we managed to make the rhino extinct after we brought them back to the area. Need to educate people and stop poverty.

Noted. I hope somewhere hidden in the world there are live Black Rhino's. People just do not think about what they are doing.

And so, for a month's pay they sold their very souls.

Stop buying stuff from China! As the Chinese business owner gets richer, more rhinos and elephants die to provide luxury items to show off one's wealth.

I hope the park rangers are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Their derreliction of duty is appalling!

The human race is like a virus, all we do if infect, spread and destroy. I felt like crying when I heard the news about the rhinos, but sadly I was not surprized.
