A rhino horn to the backside, and I'd say mission accomplished.

Good -but the real culprits are the ones who pay these poachers -China and the other Asian countries involved in the cruel slaughter of these endangered animals -and for what??they make -trinkets and weird porions from their -body parts -wine from the emaciated body of the beautiful -majestic tigers--they should recieve -World condemnation"- for their -inhumane -depravity to these animals that will soon be -only a -picture in a book.

This is a good first step. If each of the poachers were given this kind of sentence maybe they wouldn't be so eager to do the killing. It still falls on the Asian countries where the ancient myths prevail.

Even though this cannot bring those rhinos back, it must serve as a warning to other poachers.

Noted - this monstrous bastard should have been executed in an agonising way. He needed to feel the pain, the fear, the terror that the poor rhino felt when it was brutally slaughtered. In fact, his flipping dick and hands should have been chopped off!!!
