Kaziranga National Park is a story of success when it comes to conservation of rhinos – but they kill poachers
So far, the park has killed 50 people
Rhinos are safe there – a century ago, there was only a handful of Indian one-horned rhinoceros
Now, the park hosts more than 2,400, which is two-thirds of the world’s population
However, more people were shot dead by park guards then the number of rhinos killed by poachers
These people all went after rhino horn, as they could be sold for as much as $6,000 for 100g
They are mostly marketed as a miracle cure for everything from cancer to erectile dysfunction
So yes, rhinos do need protection, but this has gone too far
National park’s workers can kill a person and get away with impunity
The question is, could this kind of punishment ever be justified?And how many innocent people were killed?
yep, you are right.
Killing an innocent animal because of a fcking horn, and real risk of clearing the whole spieces because of it is way too far.
