Sadly noted. There needs to be harsher penalties, better resources to manage & protect the rhinos as well as to chase down the low llfes that commit these abysmal acts of violence.

And the fact that they even bother to put a monetary value on these animals speaks volumes.
Maybe it is time for the UN to step in?

Why isn't more done to protect endangered animals from being slaughtered by poachers'whose only motive is greed? The authorities know they should protect them but do little or nothing to prevent it and so it keeps happening. Absolutely shocking!

What a shitty way to start a fresh year off. Once again, the only way to stop this is to put a huge bounty out on the poachers. Live by the gun, die by the gun. Thanks Jill. Let's hope maybe this year some help comes to the rhinos.
