Poaching poachers in South Africa's rhino-heartland

Postby Ozymandias » Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:41 am

Greetings from Limpopo Province, South Africa. I've been checking out the private rhino reserves up here for a week, hearing tales of gun battles with poachers as a result of the crazy money that Asia is willing to pay for rhino horn. Anyways, here is one of the white rhinos, chasing our 4x4. I'm keen to come back here soon and make a documentary about the trade, after the hatchet job Louis Theroux did back in 2008.

And here's over USD 2 million worth of Sable, also being farmed out here!

Two good documentaries to watch: Trophy (the Shaul Schwarz one) and STROOP.
