~ NEW ~ How do you save the endangered Black Rhino? Shoot them? Apparently so. I was inspired to carve this piece after reading the Namibian government issues up to five permits per year which are auctioned to the highest bidder to kill this magnificent animal. This way Namibia gets a lot of money to combat poaching and rich, morally-poor hunters can convince themselves the rhino's welfare is uppermost in thier thoughts rather than boasting a new addition to thier "trophy" room. Dallas Safari Club member Corey Knowlton who bid $350.000.00 to kill his rhino threw his toys out of pram when Delta Airlines refused to carry his "trophy" black rhino head back to the US and is now suing the airline. Good luck Delta. In my opinion, it doesn't say much for the human race if this is our best solution to conservation.
