    It is huge - the figures of the past few years for South Africa speak for themselves.

    Mandarin its disgusting, i am fortunate enough to live on a privately owned game reserve,
    we have about 56 white rhino on our property, of which i have about 16 or so that hang around my area, they are very inquisitive and often hang out in the garden, we recently had scare with a helicopter doing some low flying over our property we thought it might have been poachers.

    Excuse the bad pic it was taken via mobile, but here is a mother and son that frequent our yard, in this pic they are next to the old work shops that is about 15 to 20 meters from my garage.

    When they catch these poachers, they should de-horn them too! Seriously!

    The biggest problem behind this are the white collar business men behind the syndicate, ever dog has their day!

    I think they should also sentence anyone dealing in illegal ivory to live behind bars, in a South American prison!
