We will never save our endangered animals as long as people like this are hired to save them.

We will never save endangered species until we eliminate the poverty which drives smuggling.

If they are guilty they should be mutilated and left alone to bleed out! Then they should do that to everyone else involved in poaching, poaching will be over not long after they start doing that!

The poverty situation is so bleak for many Africans.
They have turned to poaching instead of starving.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Thank you Cal

arrested on suspicion only????i hope they get the names behind the business of this sick,cruel trade!Only those high authorities can stop people from buying rhino horn ... Their people won’t listen to outsiders.... The Vietnamese and Chinese governments (must) condemn it, and categorically state that (rhino horn) is not a cure for (any) sickness.
