Thank you for signing the petition "WE DEMAND AND EXPECT THAT SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT ACT IMMEDIATELY AND DECISIVELY TO END RHINO KILLING CARNAGE AND AVERT IMMINENT RHINO EXTINCTION" Thank you Simone, that image is just awful, poor Rhino's & all for man's greed. With the price of Rhino horn being higher than gold, diamonds or heroin it is vital that they step up the protection to a whole new level or else we are going to lose this innocent & magnificent animal. These scumbag poachers are even breaking into museums & auction houses to steal Rhino horn, they will stop at nothing. So I say the same treatment for them!

Signed, noted. Unbelievable, I don't know how a person can do that to an animal. Scum.
I still say they need to poison every single rhino horn on every single rhino or chemically alter it to ruin the 'medicinal' value that it's poached for.
Too many corrupt officials to be bought, too many stupid, ineffective decisions and solutions, to try and 'stop' poaching. .

Human beings are a CANCER on this Planet. The exception proves the rule. Our animal brethren are suffering agonizing 'lives' in captivity, torture and maiming - and murder. And yet people continue to insist that human beings have the "right" to imprison them, slaughter them, eat them, and use them for "medicine" and LUXURIES. This is a DISGRACE. If you really give a damn for animals GO VEGAN and FIGHT for animal rights.

I am South African and I am beyond disgusted in the government that we have here !!!!! They don't give a damn about any life - and an animal's even less !! They would rather side with those yellow chinese bastards because they are more worried about losing out on money to line their pockets. A perfect example of this is that they wouldn't give the Dalai Lama a visa to come to Desmond Tutu's birthday celebration because the chinese (frigging waste of oxygen) weren't happy. They are so deep in bed with them it is disgusting. If they wouldn't do something as simple as giving a visa, there is no way in hell that they would get off their fat, padded asses and do something about the rhinos. They don't give a shit about them. It will be left up to the man in the street and the wildlife organisations to put an end to this - not the government !!!!!!!!!!!

If you have been close, close to these majestic animals, you will never understand how anybody can commit a crime so cruel and beyond imagination. They are not human and deserve the ultimate sentence for killing these creatures: Death penalty. That will help to curb the killings a little bit.
