Mozambican rhino poachers are seen as benefactors by their communities. This is according to Regional Ranger, Louis Olivier. Olivier says poachers build mansions for themselves in their villages with the money they make from rhino poaching in the Kruger

Horrid, horrid horrid. Just because they do "good" things for the community doesn't make their actions right. The Mafia gives a lot of moeny to the Church, they are still thugs.

So they give 1% of the blood money they get in a feast for the villagers - so what?!! It is terrifying that they are influenced by this.
I do hope the U. Pretoria Faculty of Veterinary Science DNA machine is working again soon!

Shame on these pathetic low lives. Start killing all the poachers before it's too late for the remaing other varied wildlife. And stop China. Thx Jill.

Burn the lowlife poachers alive in their blood money mansions, and wipe out everyone in the depraved communities whom praise the evil scum

Yikes. I think they should confiscate the mansions and throw the poachers in jail. Too many of these articles to comment on ... so very sad :(

This proves that this is known about at very high levels of government.
And I agree, burn down these "mansions" and make deadly examples of those that have blood on their hands before they drive them extinct.

Dear God - I can't even comment, I am so distraught - I have a rhino tattoo on my arm in the hopes that when people see it they will realise that we all need to stand united in trying to protect them. I swear, these monsters need to be dissected whilst alive, they need to scream in pain and fear and no mercy should be shown to them. They cannot be human - they are spawn of satan, sent here straight from the pits of hell. I do not want to share the earth with them!!!!!

And always I come back to say the same things, you see that the governments of these countries know where they are poachers and they do nothing to stop them??? How bastard they are?????????? They don't want to stop poachers, that's all. Thanks for sharing Jill.

There is a terrible feeling of helplessness with regard to this situation. It's as though there is no way to stop these monsters - they will only stop when there are no animals left!! No laws or punishments seem to have any effect as money speaks.

I truly shed tears of sadness, anger and fury! But there seems to be no end to the wanton cruelty on all innocent animals. We can yell in fury and rage to no avail! There is a new God/religion encompassing the entire world.
GREED, MONEY AND MATERIALISTIC POSSESSIONS! Nothing else matters and all wildlife is at risk from us supposed intelligent humane? Humans.

This news just literally tears my heart, as these evil, stinking, monsters, are living off the pain, suffering & murdering of these innocent animals!!!! What can WE DO to stop this??? The governments don't act & the SHAME CONTINUES! Love the suggestions, Dearest Terry & Ellen, burn down these evil monsters & give em a taste of they've been dishing out!~
