So sad the protectors turned out to be the killers or the accomplices.
Noted with heartfelt sadness that the rhinos don't seem to have a relief. Thank you.

Thank God they got caught. i think this is the same thing happening in my country with all the elephants being poached. thogh i don't think it's just the lower ranks it must have backing from very high ranking officials considering the rate at which the elephants are dying with very few arrests and the government taking forever to amend the wildlife act. it's such aterrible situation all around.

Disgusting!!! They are supposed to be upholding the law - not imposing their own laws by putting a price on these innocent animals heads!!! Put a bounty on theirs'!!!

Very sad. I thought the police were supposed to protect the rhinos from poaching.
