For six years, poachers in Zimbabwe killed more than a thousand rhinos. Horns of animals are sent to the Asian market for the use in the “traditional medicine”. Big horn can fetch up to $360,000 on the black market. To ward off poachers from killing rhinos, government officials and veterinarians are compelled to saw the off the rhino’s horns. Sometimes the authorities have to completely remove the rhino’s from their habitats, as seen above, to new territory by helicopter.
