Have you guys read the article in National Geographic? This is just part
of it. The magazine has a 5 or 6 page article. March 2012. They are
cutting off the horns of some of the rhino's in order to prevent them
from being to "tempting" to poachers, and to stop them from fighting or
injuring people. The article says the rhino's horns will grow back in
about 2 years.
Do you think these people are selling these horns to the
Chinese for medicine, just like poachers do? OMG its horrible. There
is one picture of a rhino carcass hanging in a meat locker waiting to
be salted down. If you have a weak stomach don't look at it.
They are moving them out of the
wild and onto game reserves to make money. There is one photo in
the magazine where the rhino is being moved by helicopter, and it
is hanging upside down head towards the ground. They look desolate
after they remove their horns. Why is this being allowed to happen?
