THREE more rhinos have been poached in Nanyuki. 2012 was a very bad year for elephant and rhinos in Kenya. Thousands were poached although KWS has not released the exact numbers.

The greed of some humans, they need to learn to value life of others as they treasure their own! Thanks Jill.

Quote of the day: "I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people." - Sir Isaac Newton

The Kenyan government is obviously too corrupt to care about these beautiful creatures. So., heart breaking to think of a world without rhino & elephants roaming free, I look forward when humankind is NO MORE! Only then will this planet be safe & free from the most insidious creature ever to be created.

Thanks. In another 10-15 years there will be no more large animals roaming these lands. Educating our young to respect and appreciate animals is the 1st step. Obviously this theory will not help rhinos or elephants as there will not be any left to save,but it sure will for what little remains in the wild. This is already an EPEDEMIC. These poachers must be poached on the same land and left there as a snack for other wildlife!!!!
