TODAY ANOTHER 3 RHINOS WERE POACHED IN SOUTH AFRICA!
1 BULL AND 1 FEMALE DIED…. ANOTHER FEMALE IS STILL ALIVE BUT IN A CRITICAL CONDITION. ALL WERE DARTED WITH A VETERINARY DRUG AND THEIR HORNS TAKEN.

IS THIS HAPPENING because game farmers are furious about a new ruling in the Veterinary Professions Act that prohibits game farmers from darting their own game with a scheduled tranquilising drug in emergencies or for treatment purposes. The ruling came into effect on 8 June 2012.

Its heart braking but you can`t fight goverment, only because trading with the east by the leaders, is a licence for other elligal traders to kill.That's why there is absolute silence from above.

The media release by the South African Hunters and Game Conservation Association on the 8 October 2012 contains much misinformation.
It accuses the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) of having failed South Africa, its people, and its rhinos miserably, when it missed the 4 October deadline.
THE REALITY OF THE MATTER IS THAT SOUTH AFRICA HAS SUBMITTED A PROPOSAL MANY TIMES AND HAS BEEN REJECTED OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

1975 CITES is established and all Rhino are put on Appendix I.

The media release by the South African Hunters and Game Conservation Association on the 8 October 2012 contains much misinformation.

THE REALITY OF THE MATTER IS THAT SOUTH AFRICA HAS SUBMITTED A PROPOSAL MANY TIMES AND HAS BEEN REJECTED OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

1975 CITES is established and all Rhino are put on Appendix I.
1981 First proposal by South Africa for trade – REJECTED!
1989 Second proposal to trade – REJECTED!
1992 Late submission - REJECTED!
1994 Proposal to trade live animals - accepted with restrictions as per annotation 503: Ceratotherium simum simum *(population of South Africa, for the trade in live animals to appropriate and acceptable destinations and hunting trophies only) - THE PROPOSAL WAS REJECTED BUT ANNOTATION ALLOWED.
1997 SA proposed TRADE IN HORN at CoP10 in 1997 proposed an annotation ° 503 to allow the trade in parts and derivatives but with a zero export quota – REJECTED!
Ask yourselves: Why is the hunting fraternity so upset about a proposal that would preclude them from hunting AN ENDANGERED ANIMAL?
