Why???? Because a bunch of old men need an "aphrodisiac? Sure let's kill some rhinos! These are pathetic,
sick little people, including the ones that kill them.

Noted & posted. This will be difficult to enforce until the client nations stop the demand for such goods.

these animals need 100% x 100 to be protected! to ban their protection is beyond stupid and heartless! Shame on Africa and all countries who do not support the protection of wild life. once they are gone from this earth they are gone forever except their pictures to tell our offspring what was once a living breathing soul, wiped out by wicked evil greedy mankind

The Rhinos, Elephants and all other wild animals need all the protection they can get. It is time that powerful countries use their trade as a weapon against hunting and export of wild animals and their parts to whoever uses them. Only if US and other countries stop exporting their technology, they will listen.

It is high time that people stand up protect these innocent animals.

African gov'ts are so corrupt they would sell their own mothers for a buck. These animals have so little chance of survival in the next 50 years and these low lifes aren't helping.

What is wrong with these people The world needs a total ban on killing rhino This is a message i had from a friend in South Africa today who helps the rhino etc and it makes you want to weep
POACHING PARADISE! On Wednesday the Department of Environmental Affairs confirmed that 96 rhino were poached since the beginning of the year. This is MORE THAN TWO A DAY!! In the words of Dr William Fowlds: “Geza, the Naughty One, who touched my heart as a playful calf, died while I held my hand over his intact eye, his shaking body growing still and peaceful. Geza, who had his horns and part of his face hacked off while he was still alive by poachers feeding a chain of careless greed and ignorant demand. What I witnessed ensures that I will NEVER FIND PEACE UNTIL THE KILLING STOP”. Will these horrific slaughtering only stop when the last rhino on earth is killed....?

Yes i think man will not be content till they have all gone and they have all their aphrodisiac medicine they want so sickening and sad

Noted Thanks

So sad ! Maybe we should spread the rumor that poachers and all other animals abusers, once they are cooked and in powder, are very aphrodisiac and can cure cancer...
