Good afternoon everyone.... finally managed to upload, rather late than never.
Thank you for all your great comments on Scar face and to Harriet for her UA.
Today the last of The Big 5....our treasured Rhino which is under threat of extinction due to the excessive poaching of their horns. Last year 588 Rhino were killed in South Africa, 362 in the Kruger national Park alone....that is one a day, really tragic. To make it worse there is no medicinal value/cure to their horns which is made up of similar stuff to our nails.
The Private game reserves are now either micro chipping the horns, injecting poison into the horns or even sedating the rhino and cutting their horns off. So if they do manage to survive over the years you may never see them with their horns. South Africa have already lost 0ver 350 this year. They have arrested 246 poachers but it does not seem to deter them. I personally would like them to get the death penalty.
I will upload another image of a mother and her calf, she has a huge horn worth millions of dollars as well as a few rhino taking shelter under some trees during a windy afternoon.
Have a great day.....
P.S CarolG has asked me to mention that she was also unable to upload a bug this morning and decided to go and sun herself on the beach for the day
