      How much more are we supposed to take on this hellhole planet? All poachers should be shot dead on site.

      The number of rhinos killed in South Africa looks set to exceed last year's record total.

      With just three months left in 2013, the number of rhinos killed is more than 500 and appears almost certain to top 2012's death toll of 668.

      The South African Government has already sent in the military to the country's flagship game reserve, the Kruger National Park, to help in the fight against poaching.

      There is also a plethora of independently-funded efforts to save the animal which faces extinction for the second time in a century.

      One man doing his fair share is veterinarian Dr William Fowlds who is the founder of Rhino Lifeline and managed to persuade the South African bank Investec to help financially support his efforts.

        This is very sad indeed! Have watched many specials on this over the years.

        All because some people stupidly think that it will enhance their romantic life.

        How selfish and unaware is that?

          God, it makes me so sick! Those poachers are well organized and will kill anyone who tries to stop them. I wish I could get an army together and mutilate the poachers and let them die a miserable death. Leave them to squirm in the heat until a Lion comes along and eats them! Yes, I DO mean it. Pure evil.

          I pray the South African Gov't can stop them!

          Thank you 4 caring about the Rhinos!

            and the black rhino went extinct just a few months ago.

              Black Rhino Hunting Permit Sells for $350,000.00 USD in Dallas, Texas Auction!

              http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2014/01/09/black-rhino-hunt-auction-wont-help-conservation/

              The idiot who bought this 'permit of death' I hope a lion eats him/her.
              And why is the system protecting their identity?

              Thanks Dallas Safari Club.

              another article:

              And the U.S. Government is okay with this, they are such hypocrites on this issue.

                Hmmm....using death the try and end death. Both the death threats against the person who bought it and the poster who wishes a lion would eat the hunter.

                that's why I stopped believing in groups for animal rights. they often use it as an excuse to take out their sadism.

                IT seems to me the ones who the groups should be threatening isn't the person who bought the license but maybe rather those who ISSUED IT AND SOLD IT? they're the ones making it available. (and don't forget the others who bid on it as well).
                that is for those who find death threats an acceptable route. (PS terrorism of any type doesn't work. just as the US).

                  I am not going to argue with you KO. As for the 'hunter:' I do hope he gets eaten by a Lion, a BIG hungry Lion. Then the rhino can live his life till he dies a peaceful natural death.

                    and why is the hunter not allowed to live his then?

                      Kathryn O:and why is the hunter not allowed to live his then?

                      If the hunter takes a life, s/he is scum & Karma ought to bite him/ her on the ass good & hard
                      Very surprised at this disregard for life you have, Kathryn..or are you just being outrageous for the sake of it???

                        And, the sad thing is..you don't need to kill a rhino for it's horn
                        You can knock it really hard & it will fall out...

                          Not being outrageous. Just enlightened a bit more it seems then the average animal rights activist. (yeah, I'm bragging and that's not very enlightened but I'm not claiming to be Buddha)

                          rather then wish death upon the hunter in an attempt to pacify your own sadistic tendancies, wouldn't it be more enlightened to wish the hunter to realize that he is killing a rare and endangered species and to see the alternatives to that? and then to implement and carry out what he realizes?

                          as for sadistic traits, there are healthier ways to relieve them. They've got clubs for that now, you know.

                          Vegetarians and animal rights activist claiming they have more of respect for life but then wishing death upon their fellow beings for disagreeing with their actions makes my brain hurt.
                          It's why I walked away from them. they will never make any progress in their movements with those types of attitudes. (and they show they are not better then those they oppose)

                            Kathryn O:Not being outrageous. Just enlightened a bit more it seems then the average animal rights activist. (yeah, I'm bragging and that's not very enlightened but I'm not claiming to be Buddha)

                            No darling, you're not *above* the average animal rights activist ... you're here to ruffle feathers. If it irked you, even slightly, that scumbags were murdering innocent creatures, you wouldn't be so blasé about this topic!!! And yes, you're being outrageous to p*ss people off ... mission accomplished!!!

                            Kathryn O:rather then wish death upon the hunter in an attempt to pacify your own sadistic tendancies, wouldn't it be more enlightened to wish the hunter to realize that he is killing a rare and endangered species and to see the alternatives to that? and then to implement and carry out what he realizes?

                            Kathryn, I would never wish death or suffering on anybody (animal or human) ... I let Karma take care of that!! In all seriousness, we can *wish* all we like ... you can't teach compassion to the ignorant...

                            Kathryn O:as for sadistic traits, there are healthier ways to relieve them. They've got clubs for that now, you know

                            Whatever rocks your socks, Kath ... I'm not here to judge!!! But yes, I'm fully aware of those 'clubs' ... you're not the only member who's into kinky sh*t (time & a place to discuss it though ... why bring that up in the CC thread???)

                            Kathryn O:Vegetarians and animal rights activist claiming they have more of respect for life but then wishing death upon their fellow beings for disagreeing with their actions makes my brain hurt.

                            Don't tar us 'all' with the one brush, Kathryn ... that is narrowminded &, quite frankly, pretty damn annoying - I am a Vegetarian & an animal lover. I don't wish ill-health on ANYBODY ... I don't wish death on ANYBODY. I want peace & tranquility in the world, for all living beings ... but people like you grate on my last nerve & make me want to throw stuff at the computer screen cos I'm soooo aggitated & angry.

                            You have got a serious attitude problem ... you're quite like the other member with your notions of yourself. Nice, real nice!!

                            It's not a 'movement' either ... it's a way of life & a choice we make. It's trying to stop cruelty & disregard for lives (in this case, the lives on animals) so you can MOVE OFF over somewhere else because I've seen another side to you today, & I don't like it ...

                              I AM AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST WHO IS VERY ACTIVE, VERY INVOLVED SO DON'T GO ACCUSING ME OF THIS BULL POO THAT YOU ARE. YOU ARE BASICALLY JUST LOOKING TO TAKE OUT YOUR SADISTIC FANTASIES . I AM NOT BLASE EITHER. IT'S JUST THAT I AM POINTING OUT THERE IS DEATH AND KILLING FROM BOTH SIDES. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS IN WHAT YOU BOTH WISH TO KILL AND WHY.
                              KILLING IS KILLING. PERIOD. UNLESS YOU'RE GOING TO EAT IT, YOU'RE PRETTY SICK.

                              I AM POINTING OUT HOW TO GET PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO YOU AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. (YOU MIGHT NOTICE THAT I AM PRETTY GOOD AT GETTING MYSELF NOTICED) AS WELL AS THE FACT THAT VEGETARIANS WHO DISCUSS A DESIRE TO KILL HURT MY BRAIN.
                              THAT IS NOT OUTRAGEOUS AND I AM NOT THE ONE BRINGING IT UP .
                              AS WELL AS THE FACT THAT I IN A PREVIOUS POST POINTED OUT WHO IS TO REALLY BLAME....IT'S NOT JUST THE ONE HUNTER. OTHERS WERE INVOLVED IN THIS BID FOR KILLING THE RHINO.
                              YOU CAN'T EVEN LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE.

                                Kathryn O:OKAY HERE IS WHERE I STOP READING AND SET YOU STRAIGHT.

                                I would HIGHLY advise you to go back & read what I wrote as you are ignoring EVERY DAMN POINT I made.. I am against killing of EVERY sort, so don't put me into a category in which I don't belong!!!

                                You get yourself noticed for all the WRONG reasons. Were you really deprived of attention as a kid or something?! Seriously, what is the matter with you?!?!

                                You accuse me of not looking at the bigger picture but you won't even read the full message I wrote - hilarious!!!!! Practice what you preach!!!

                                And take the CAPS LOCK off - it's almost as annoying as the orange writing!!!!!

                                      I'm surprised at the disregard for life displayed by the vegetarians and animal rights folks. (actually I'm not. I've seen it too much and walked away)

                                      So, it's okay to disregard life if you think he is scum?

                                        Yes, anybody who takes another's life (be that animal, human, etc) is scum in my eyes ... but did I EVER say 'kill the hunters'??? NO, so don't tar me with your 'misguided' opinion of me ... you don't know me

                                        I used to think you were a nice enough lady ... a bit 'kooky' (but I love that) but it seems to me that I'm just the next 'victim' in a long list of unfortunate people to challenge you & your views

                                        Nice Private Mail by the way ... I'll be reporting you for offensive language. PERIOD!!!
