    Rhino poaching should be banned. It is absolutely disgusting that some countries still tolerate the trading of these horns.

    Li Bing Bing is taking a good step in addressing the issue of black market rhino poaching. I'm glad she did it, because her country, China, has a large black market that sells and trades endangered animals. However, I don't think human life should be taken as a penalty for poaching rhinos, because the majority of the public would then view environmentalists as extremists. I don't think that's good for the cause. I think a more effectiveand, in my opinion, ethicalway to address this issue would be to educate countries' people through media, NGO work, and PR (like above), since many people who buy endangered species goods do not know the goods come from poached animals. Gov.s should pass clearly worded laws banning the eating of endangered species and enforce those laws. (China has passed a law but it's not clear if it is being enforced.) Gov.s could also create economic incentives to deter the poaching of endangered species... There are many different options to approach this issue that are more likely to be accepted by the public and more effective than "red" methods. I understand that many people are upset over the death of many precious animals, but I ask people to put more thought into the possible consequences of their ideas/ words before they post! Thanks for your understanding, and feel free to question my views.

    it should be illegal to kill rhinos, take their horns, or sell them or the horns! in fact, this is total injustice.

    Why do the people need to kill them. I think it must be banned!

    Rhino horn concept is a myth, i think all this hype is fictitious. Leave Rhinos alone. Killing / poaching animals must be punishable by death.

    Why not destroy the market for rhino horns? If the market is gone, rhino poaching will stop. Poison some horns and then release them into the black market. In my eyes, the users will have ceded their right to life anyway. But then, I care far more about the rhinos than the horn-users. Intermittent positive reinforcement is the most effect training tool, so make several releases over a period of a few years. Use different poisons to make it difficult to test and wash the horns. A few anonymous tips confirming the scattered poisonings will enhance the effect and the demand for rhino horns will disappear quickly. Yes?
