500 rhino deaths every year, Is this it for the RHINOS?
South African Kruger National park is riddled with Rhino Horn poaches. They travel from foreign lands to get their hands on this pricey possesion. The cost of one rhino horn, in the black market can make a profit of R800 000 which is around $80 000, now this is twice the cost of a gold bar which is around R450 000 - $45 000. Not to label out any ethnic group or nation but the facts are, the majority of poachers or should i say buyers of rhino horns come from ASIAN nations vietnam [sic\ being the major buyer. Apparently the rhino horn has many medicinal qualities, and some say it is also used as an aphrodesiac. It is also used to make aurnaments [sic\ and interior decoration.
At the rate rhinos are killed I highly doubt they will live to see 2020. Graphic.
