I have a question. What happened to all the Rhino Horns of all the dead Rhinos from the beginning of the National Parks in South Africa. Who cashed in? Is rhino poaching a problem now since native Africans are also getting a share into profits?

Rhino is our one of our big 5, part of our heritage. Tourists pay lots of money to come and see our wildlife. Anyone caught killing them should be thrown with their hands and feet tied to the wild lions to be eaten alive. Yes a rhino is worth more than a human!!!!!!! People are murdered for a cell phone or R100, does that mean a cell phone is worth more than a human, is hijacking a car worth more than murdering a 4 year old child???? Obviously it is!!!! If people stopped at having so many children there would be less mouths to feed and and in the long run less people unemployed. There would be enough for the humans need but not their greed.
