Sad. My 5yr old asked me what my favorite animal was. I said Rhino.

Oh, ANTI-poaching demonstration

/We thought you said SUCCESSFUL poaching demonstration... our bad
 
2012-02-09 06:45:21 PM
We had to kill the Rhino to save it.

The rhino, nicknamed Spencer, went into convulsions and died after he was shot with a tranquilizer dart

For some reason this made me giggle like crazy. Really sad story though, I'm all in favor of preventing poachers from hunting rhinos.

Irony tag on safari I see

Can you poach rhino? I thought it'd be too tough for that and you'd have to braise it or use a crock pot.

The fail here is the missed opportunity at the third appropriate use of the irony tag in the history of fark.

The point of the demonstration wasn't saving the rhino's life because it wasn't in immediate danger. It is also known that one of the possible outcomes of anesthesia is that the animal dies. They accepted the risk and they were unlucky. Doesn't qualify for the ironic tag.
 
2012-02-09 07:50:18 PM
Oh well. It isn't like there aren't plenty of other rhinos in the world.

Wait.Rhino horns grow back?

Why the fark are poachers killing them then? It is like diamond sellers? Limit the amount on the market to increase the value.

"It's sad for us; it's the loss of another animal," Hern said, referring to the rhino's death. "It's a death that I still chalk up to poaching."

No, you dumbass. You killed it.

They don't care. The other rhinos will make new ones.
They are idiots, and it is easier/safer to take a horn from a dead rhino, than a not-quite-sedated-enough rhino that may kill you as you cut off the horn.

If all they care for are the horns, why not just clone those things or use science to reproduce them? As long as it's the same material, then it should work for their mumbo jumbo, unless what they really need is the soul of the rhino lol:D

So, to save the rhinos we should start giving poachers free tranquilizer darts?

Or make rhino horns legal only if farmed thus allowing legal venues for demand and demand for population increase?

/Better to just convince those who buy this stuff that the "lower human horn" of a Beijing millionaire is much more potent.

On the plus side, they can sell his horn to raise money to for more anti-poaching demos.

You ever try to get the horn off of a living rhino?

The only bettter ending would have been the Rino waking up and killing most of the participants. THAT....would have been awesome.

Start a rhinos unlimited; organizations like ducks unlimited are dedicated to the survival of a species; so we can murder some of their descendents in the future.

2012-02-09 08:33:25 PM
So, while demonstrating a procedure that forces poachers to kill more rhinos until they find one with a non-poisoned horn, they accidentally killed the rhino.

/there's a lesson in there somewhere
