Sadly, the remaining rhinos in Mozambique are reported to have been wiped out due to poaching. The animals had been under protection on a preserve, but 30 of the 100 rangers who were supposed to be caring for the animals are believed to have been aiding poachers, and are currently awaiting trial. Even if found guilty, it will only be a misdemeanor.

Rhino horns are a big market in certain Asian countries, primarily China and Vietnam, and are used in folk remedies or for ornamental purposes. If poaching continues, experts warn that elephants will suffer the same fate.

I agree, it's sad, but we need to put ourselves in peoples shoes (if they have any Undecided). For example, unlike North Americans, people elsewhere need to survive. Survival is easy in the USA or Canada, but not everywhere in the world. Hungry people see this as an opportunity to eat - we see it as an environmental problem. I agree that it is an environmental problem anyway you look at it, but we shouldn't be quick to judge. If there was an alternative animal to hunt, but they chose the Rhino, it would be wrong in my books. Since there are too many unknowns, we shouldn't say much.
