I was going to post about this too, it's devastating. As much (rightful) anger as we have against the poachers, it's the consumers who buy this rhino horn crap and believe superstitious nonsense that enrage me the most, they are the ones creating the demand in the first place.

Apparently some cultures think grinding it up and ingesting it is a potent aphrodisiac that puts Viagra to shame. It'd be laughably pathetic were it not so horrible for those poor rhinos.

ETA: My bad, it's for convulsions and fever. Too much urban legend around that one, but I should have researched. Apparently it's China and Vietnam that are the number one horn users though.

I posted this news on facebook, and the only responses I got were a couple of "likes" from people who don't speak the language I posted in, so they only "liked" because I said something, not because they understood what I said. -_-
