As I am sure many of you have learned, despite the many letters and petitions of protest, and the physical protests at the Dallas Safari Club's auction this past Saturday (January 11, 2014), the permit to "hunt" and kill the critically-endangered Black Rhino was sold to the highest bidder for $350,000. The auction was closed and the name of the winner will not be shared. Thanks to the over 25,700 persons who signed this petition and took the time to log their feelings. I do hope the permit is never used and that all $350,000 goes to Black Rhino preservation. Let's hope the Dallas Safari Club has gotten the message that this is not the preferred method for raising funds.
