Rhinocycled

“Two weeks ago the largest seizure of ivory and rhino horn in Mozambique’s history was made from the house of a Chinese national in Maputo. The 1.3 tonnes were poached from 65 rhinoceros and 170 elephants. … Thieves have [subsequently] raided a police storeroom holding Mozambique’s largest ever haul of confiscated rhino horn and ivory, making off with 12 horns valued at around £700,000.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/27/thieves-steal-ivory-rhino-horn-mozambique-police)

This week’s special: double-poached horn, helping to keep illegal animal products out of the waste stream.

South Africa has “moved around 100 rhinos to unspecified neighboring states as part of efforts to stem the illicit slaughter of the animals for their horns. … For security reasons, the precise countries where the rhinos had been moved would not be named.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/01/22/us-safrica-rhinos-poaching-idUKKBN0KV1HN20150122)

Where do you hide a rhino? Well away from dark horners.
