South Africa mulls legalising rhino horn trade

http://www.southafrica.info/news/south-africa-mulls-legalising-rhino-horn-trade.htm#.VH-L0DHF-So

Legalization would be a more medium-term solution,” she said."

"Legalizing rhino horn sales would only increase harm to animals and would not deter poaching. "

I dont know what the answer 2 save these rhino from poachers, what we're doing now is not working & it's not enough. I dont think legalizing rhino horn is going 2 help, case in point tigers. The only good poacher is a dead 1. S/N Thanks Slava

How much has educating, those who believe that rhino horn has medicinal properties (The Asian Market), made a dent in the trade of rhino horn or no studies?
