They have roamed the earth freely and un-touched for over 15 million years. Then back in the late 1800's the bull Rhinoceros was poached rarely for it's penis. The penis in Traditional Chinese Medicine was seen as an aphrodisiac as it was seen as big and powerful coming from an animal that was itself the last of the large dinosaurs.
From the mid 1970s Rhinoceros populations declined rapidly, again mainly due to over hunting and NOT poaching. Poaching only hit Africa and Asia when it was said by a Vietnamese government official that Rhinoceros horn "cured his wife's cancer". Word spread like wild fire and since then our precious Rhinoceros have almost been pushed to extinction. Their horns hacked down to the face, faces hacked completely off with saws and pangers. Even baby Rhino's [calf] as seen in this picture don't get it easy. They too are brutalized simply because they try to protect their parents.
Please sign the petitions listed hereto. PLEASE – PLEASE sign and share the ENTIRE thread. WE NEED these petitions concluded ASAP. WE NEED MORE pressure on the government.
SOUTH AFRICA HAS LOST TO DATE 6TH OCTOBER FOR 2013- 689 RHINOCEROS – ALL POACHED FOR A HORN THAT HAS NO MEDICINAL PROPERTIES. HAS BEEN PROVEN TO NEVER HAVE ANY MEDICAL PROPERTIES. YET ASIAN BUYERS STILL ILLEGALLY TRADE IT. AFRICAN FARMERS NOW WANT TO PUSH THE TRADE AND KILL MORE RHINOCEROS BUY ASKING CITES AT THE NEXT COP 2016 TO LIFT THE TRADE THAT IS STILL CURRENTLY BANNED. – ARE YOU SERIOUSLY GOING TO ALLOW THIS?
What options does the Rhinoceros have other than de-horning?
1. Increase funding to better security
2. Increased awareness to kill the medicinal lie
3. Crack down on pseudo hunters
4. Moratorium on Rhinoceros hunting
5. Pushing more rangers into the field – Please view Pro Tracks and SPOTS now
6. PUSHING MORE FUNDING FOR RHINOCEROS HORN TREATMENT THAT WILL RENDER THE HORN NON-USABLE ..TO DATE NOT ONE RHINOCEROS HAS BEEN POACHED THAT'S BEEN TREATED AND CHIPPED. SOME OF THOSE DE-HORNED HAVE BEEN POACHED.
