Sue , our guest arrived back yesterday with a massive pile of blankets . Today we recieved this news .

    Over the course of a few hours‚ the two rhino‚ Impi and Gugu‚ were attacked while the staff were being held hostage. One was killed outright‚ and the other had to be euthanised the following morning because of the severity of her injuries.
    What's the point of that? It won't make more animals available for poaching.

    The poachers don't give a fuck , , tiny baby Rhinos for a thumb nail size bit of horn , and a carer raped into the bargin, its not just Rhinos either , Pangolin and now even donkeys for the membrane between there skin and body . China and Vietnam are the main culptrits for these despicable acts being commited so some small knobed un viirile idiots thinks he might get an erection using dodgy 'traditional ' medicine

    Perhaps the answer is to flood the Chinese market with Viagra.

    I think the chinese govt are closing down the ivory trade this year and making it illegal but whether it will stamp out the demand for ivory is a moot point.Possibly it will just make it a black market item and push up the price and make it worth more for poachers...The whole situation is tragic and almost all down to the Chinese/Asian fake medicine market.
    Hebridean at heart..everywhere else is just somewhere on the way back there...
