    sad ....tjhey still blame it on poachers..........give you something to think about with animal and people...anytime you or a animal is put under ..there is a risk them may never wake up.

    I know of a case a whitetail buck costing over $40,000 didnt wake up after being put under for a semen draw.

    i sure though about it , i was put under 3 day straight few weeks back.

    That is sad. Trying to save it's life by sawing off his horn only to have him die from the sedation.

    Hi all, more sad news from S.A's rhinos: I read in yesterday's paper poachers killed a female rhino who was due to give birth in just 3 weeks. The published a picture of the calf.... WTH is wrong with people?
    Some kind people have now volunteered to sleep out in the veld with the rhinos and keep an eye on them all the time. Hope they catch those poachers soon.

    Amazing how far some people can stick their head in the sand, to avoid responsibility.

    "It's sad for us; it's the loss of another animal," Hern said, referring to the rhino's death. "It's a death that I still chalk up to poaching."

    I have bad news for you, kiddo. "Who killed the rhino?" is the correct question. The wrong answer is "Poachers."
