Legal hunters are able to legally export the rhino horn out of the country to feed the market for eastern medicines. 107 Permits already given out to so called trophy hunters...today is the 15th of September and in the last two days 3 rhino have been poached one baby rhino alive but injured....yesterday was World Rhino Day.  We made a lot of noise for our beautiful rhino...but alas one poor rhino was poached. We need help.

      We are trying to stop trophy hunting - the horn does not end up as a trophy but for medicine - there are factories in the east manufacturing special machines for grinding rhino horn and these are selling by the day.

      Maiming and killing these wonderful animals makes no sense. Why do human beings have to be so evil?

      Poaching of Rhino MUST STOP NOW, before South Africa and Africa loose these animals forever, future generations may never see Rhinos in their natural habitat if something is not done soon.

      The rhinos are being slaughtered for their horn which is just compacted hair. When SA's wildlife is gone so will be the tourists. Protect your wildlife and tourists will still come to SA. Of course this is a selfish reason to protect rhinos, elephants, etc. The animals should be protected for themselves. But if one cannot think of the animals, then think of your country - no wild life no tourists!

      China has a huge debt to pay to the animals on this planet. Shame on the people who do this. I would like to hunt them to extinction. Please sign stop the sale of new and vintage fur on Ebay.
