If you really want to you can read my answer here:

But it's a comment I got that I just couldn't resist sharing here:

Uh, clearly if the lions are eating humans they don't own, they're the poachers.

Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here" - Tool

I have since had a whole exchange with the commenter, during which she lurched from one crazy idea to the next. There is no hope for rhinos. Or, probably, white ous.
