The revolting poachers/greed/corruption are winning the battle in overwhelming fashion. So frustrating. thx Tracy

Glad to see some press going towards wildlife warriors, the more we can make these kinds of fights visible, getting more attention and hopefully funds to these amazing people!

It's a lucrative business, so that reduces the chances of it being stopped. The trick will be to reduce its potential to make money, thus rendering the animals safer.

The video is heartbreaking. I've just watched it again on Sky news, the poor rhino that was still alive, just, a few days after being savaged. The rhino that had to be euthanised because they had hacked his legs so badly, he wouldn't have survived even though he kept his horn. I can't put into decent words how I feel as I've cried so much. What can we do to stop this evil before its too late?

time to quit playing easy with the whole chain from poacher to the groups that hire them . if your found to be any one or part of the chain , then your whole family should be put down . make the price so high that no one will want to pay it . Thank You Tracy .

they need to put their armies on these rhino's and kill the poachers for target practice. If they can't take care of the rhino's then they need to give them to a country that will. Perhaps take them all out of the country is the answer. If they aren't there, the poachers can't get to them.

If people would stop asking for animal parts, then there would be no poachers!
