Thanks, Kevin. Goos stuff. The South African government needs to take matters firmly and seriously under discussion asap and put a full stop to all rhino poaching, lion trophy hunting, canned haunting and elephant poaching. Luckily the white lion ma have the endangered listing, lets keep our fingers crossed!
The native medicine practitioners believe the rhino horn to be an aphrodisiac, but the effect is as strong as if you ate a handful of your own hair. It is the plasebo effect, nothing more.
We need every elephant, every rhino, every tiger, every lion and all other big and snall cats protected, and truly kept safe, and as there are some rotten apples in the animal care takers, they need to be dismissed and new ones with testing and background checks to be hired.
This world has gone crazy. People are killing almost all endangered animals to the brink of extinction, and the small populations in the wild may have to resort to inbreeding to keep the species going. We need help from all breeding zoos, all private animal owners need to surrender their endangered animals for the common good and for the future of endangered species. Humans can give, but they also can take more they need and make a profit from it. This is not today's agenda any more, now the consensus is to keep the endangered animals alive, and only the criminal few keep this poaching going. They need to found, brought to justice and sent to prison.

Thanks for posting Kevin. If South Africa doesn't get very serious about protecting these animals, they will be gone just as we lost the black Rhinos. Our wild animals have been a treasured gift, but evil people have been using ,abusing and murdering them throughout time. I'm hoping for a miracle, but will it be answered??

Just shoot 'em.
Anyone connected with the crime, stand them up against
the wall and execute them for all to see.
