I am glad they got them. There are so few rhinos left and we must protect the remaining ones. 204 killed so far this year.I, like a lot of animal welfare people , am really getting tired of hearing about these rich,powerful people poaching our endangered wildlife.Perhaps instead of arresting these evil persons,maybe they should just wind up found dead at a poaching site,then maybe the next would-be poacher might think twice before he kills the next rhino. They have no feeling for anything but their own personal gains and greed

In February this year the Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, Ms Buyelwa Sonjica, placed a moratorium on the hunting and sale of rhino products in an effort to curtail the incidents of poaching and the abuse of existing legislation. Unfortunately, these incidents still continue despite these restrictive measures.

THANK YOU MS. SONJICA. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE LOCKED UP AND THE VETS SHOULD ALSO NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE. I WOULD NOT WANT MY FAMILY TO GO TO A DOCTOR THAT DIDN'T LOVE AND CARE ABOUT ANIMALS. SHAME
