The Pink is also slightly toxic, so those who seek horny medicine from the death of these rhinos will at least encounter digestive upset.

I also hope that pink dagger handles are not to be regarded as "manly" for big bad Yemeni males. This is not mentioned in the article, but is where rhino nose hair often winds up. (since rhinos also disagree with such cosmetic use, many manly men shoot them)

What ever works, as long as they leave the rhino alone and in peace.
Thanks Giana.

This is quite a dilemma. The poison may kill the rhinos, as well. Also, tranquilizing them is risky. Still, if they perish, at least someone was trying to save them. I myself would rather die this way, than to fall into the hands of a merciless poacher.
