Thank you Giana noted. What a sick perverse idea. What a brave hunter to shoot a old Rhino to deserves to die of natural causes. Conservation motivated what a sick statement by very sick humans.

Rich a**holes get to kill a rhino if they pay enough money. Rich Chinese love to show off their wealth by buying expensive stuff. Guess what? Now it is going to be even more enviable in Asia to have rhino horn- as it shows just how ridiculously wealthy you are. $350,000 isn't enough to protect every rhino from poachers....

Disgusting group of monsters. They could care less about helping rhinos, bunch of liars. I hope this hunter falls on his gun. If they really cared they would donate the money and not murder this poor rhino. Sick and evil group.

It is just me or does there seem to be a direct link between how much money a person has and how much of an uncaring a**hole they are?

I love that they were saying it could go up to a million dollars and it only went for this. What a pitiful cost for such a precious piece of our planet. If they think there is nothing wrong with this auction, I would like the names of all the bidders posted so they can be accordingly judged.

What a Stupid idea! Why don't we just use this method across the board to raise money and awareness for causes - like auctioning a permit to the highest bidder to beat a homoxesual to death to raise money for the protection of gay rights. That is just how preposterous this auction really is!!!
