This is tragic. Another species gone forever due to man's greed.

Two years on no lesson has been learned. Still the vile poaching goes on and not enough done about it. Poaching will continue until we exterminate all poachers,dealers and buyers.Nothing short of the death penalty will work.Education certainly hasn't. This wanton destruction of the rhino deserves the ultimate punishment - there have been enough warnings.
