Well this is the perfect opportunity for them to ACTUALLY do some conservation work. I'm sure the trolls have seen this and they can start getting a collection going. I hope they do buy bull and charge people to see him to get the funds back. Oh hold on some poachers will get him in the first month as don't know what security is or how to achieve it

I like the approach of the open letter. The cost of such a rhino might be astronomical for the average hunter, but it's just a drop in the bucket for celebrity antis like Gervais. Spend say 700k on the rhino, 50k on transport, and a cool million on some land... only 2 million to save a rhino. Seems like a bargain.

I'd say the math is pretty simple if I were running Save-The-Rhinos-Is-Us. If I save this rhino, it will cost me some hundreds of thousands out of pocket, plus the cost of moving it and boarding and feeding it somewhere until it dies of natural causes. And let's not forget this particular rhino is an obstreperous beast, so higher costs overall.

On the other hand, if I don't save it, and some hunter buys it and kills it, I can get on my high horse and point out just how evil hunters are, and collect money - likely millions (based on Cecil) - from poor saps around the world.

Spends hundreds of thousands now and into the future. Collect millions now.

Is that even a choice?

Bro you make a very valid point there. Do you ever feel like a minority group being pushed because you don't conform to a social norm?? I do. And as hunters we all are.

And on top of that it can no longer contribute to the gene pool as it is past breeding age and is actually contributing to the demise of the species because it is killing other rhinos.

The only viable solution is a hunter paying money and hunting this bull. That is the only way this rhino will further contribute to conservation, rather simple calculation.

Does anyone know what happened with this rhino? I'm guessing the antis are now saying they are unicorns that found chocolate

Here is the obvious question (and the answer).


Mark Robson
Can they not tranquillise and remove its horns so it can’t kill the females? It must have great genetics.


  • Jens Ulrik Høgh
    No. It's too aggressive to use as a breeding bull. And it will kill the females in any case .... it will just take a little longer without the long horn...
Must be a real shocker to the snowflakes to learn that animals actually KILL each other.............especially these unicorns ...............FWB

Rhino auction update.

The auction is over. Non-hunters showed no interest in buying this problem animal whatsoever. The bull will, therefore, be hunted in the near future and the money from the sale will be reinvested in nature conservation.

Once again the nature conservation bill is paid by hunting...

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
