The white rhino cow killed by poachers


The white rhino cow killed by poachers in the Borakalo National Park near Brits was pregnant, the National Wildlife crime investigation unit in the North West said on Monday.

The rhino was shot some time last week and her carcass was discovered on Sunday in a dam at the park. Her horn had been taken.

Head of the investigating unit Rusty Hustler said this was the 14th rhino killed at the park this year.

More than 200 rhinos have been killed by poachers this year, compared to 122 during the whole of last year.

    This will never stop, humans are too greedy the only time it will come to an end is when there is no more animals left.

    Why are people who do this allowed to live or even breath? I absolutely loath, detest people who do this - be they the syndicate boss, the middle man, the supplier, the poacher - pieces of useless trash who should have been smothered at birth. Hope you all rot in hell as well as your families who benefit from killing/poaching of any animals.
