Rhino poaching

It is incredible to think that this is still going on.
Another year, another dozen or so endangered
rhinos have been slaughtered for the horn on
the end of their nose.
This situation will continue for as long as there are
people willing to buy these horns as trophies, daggers or medicine.
Instead of tackling the impoverished folks who
do the killing, surely 'the authorities' should be
addressing the cultural forces that drive them.
