Cruel poachers kill last female rhino by hacking off her horn and allowing her to bleed to death, reports The Guardian, and South Africa National Parks officials are urging officials for help in stopping the "organized" poaching crimes. According to the report, poachers dart the animals with tranquilizer guns at night, and while the helicopter blades are whirring, jump down with chainsaws and cut the huge horn off of the animal. Sadly, if it were necessary, the Rhino's horn can be safely removed because they do grow back.

This is the sort of human activity that makes me want to crawl in a hole and die. I do not even want to be a part of the human race. It is too horrible for words or life.... Lousy with humans, is this planet.
(I don't care what color she was)
...but live, I must.
