Killing Animals Shouldn't Be Called "Conservation"

Black Rhino MaggyMeyer

Earlier this week, one of the world's last rhinoceroses was killed in the name of saving the species -- at least that's what the hunter who took the shot wants you to think. Eighteen months ago, Chris Knowlton made international headlines when he purchased the "right" to hunt an endangered black rhino in Namibia. The Dallas Safari Club announced that it would be auctioning off the right to hunt the rhino and Mr. Knowlton sprang at the opportunity, spending $350,000 to win the auction. With less than five thousand black rhinos left in the wild, we should be valuing each one and doing our best to keep them alive.
