Noted. I am so saddened that we couldn't save the black rhino. We are the voices for the rhinos who are still fighting their battle, and us with them. Thanks Colleen.

Bereft! Devastating...but as long as people exist, no animal is safe. And will people learn anything from this - will they now aggressively pursue to conserve and protect wildlife? What do you think....Big heartbreak!

Pity the poor animals born into a world with humans. Humans are devils to animals.

How greedy and selfish we are as a species! We deserve our coming judgement!

Humans are indeed evil to bring them to extinction.

How terribly upsetting! This is what other animals can expect from humans, sad to say. The majority of people simply do not care............................

There are very few black rhino left compared to what there was a few years ago, I really dont know but feel that there is too much money involved for us to ever stop it, they wont stop till they have killed them all.
