News : Bogus cancer cure leads to rhino massacre

Record numbers of rhinos are being hacked to death to make a cancer “cure” that does not work.
In South Africa alone, 265 of the endangered beasts have been killed this year – more than one a day.


The bloodbath is on course to beat 2010, when 333 died.
Gangs, with helicopters, tranquillizers and sophisticated night-vision equipment, cut off the rhinos’ horns then leave the animals to bleed to death.
The horns, which are worth more than gold at £35,000 per kilo, are smuggled to the Far East to be turned into medicine. Many people in countries such as China and Vietnam wrongly believe the horns can get rid of cancer. John Hume, owner of the Mauricedale game reserve in north-east South Africa, said: “The Chinese are growing affluent, and the demand for horn is escalating at a horrific rate.”
Since the 1970s the world rhino population has plummeted by 90%. In South Africa, where just 20,800 remain, five suspected poachers have been killed this year by rangers protecting herds.
Dr Joseph Okori, of the World Wide Fund for Nature, said: “With the current escalation in poaching, rhinos will be faced with the threat of extinction down the line.” Source THEMIRROR
