Great rigoletto 2013-06-19 12:34

hi wanda,
lovely family. i guess you couldn't dare (or were not allowed) approaching more than the range of full 300mm.s. as far as i knew, poaching was something related to cooking, but it also means hunting, i guess. your note is depressing: 408 lost, this year alone??? someone should stop the greed of humanity. i hate it >:(

Default To rigoletto: Poaching

Hi Deniz,

Yes, poaching is illegal hunting of these animals. They are hunted for their horns which are then sent overseas to Asia and used for "medicinal" purposes such as aphrodisiacs. It is sick and sad indeed.

They are quite dangerous, so if you come to close to them with the car they get very nervous and start to charge you. So it is better to keep a distance, I am sure that those horns and size of the animal could do serious damage to a person or car.

Thanks for stopping by
