New strategy could save the rhino

At the end of this NBC News video, it is reported that in at least one preserve, rhino horns are being injected with a poison that will not harm the animal.
But anyone consuming the poison could be harmed.

The plan is make the horns worthless on the market and therefore worthless to poachers.

I would hope the rhinos are going to be tagged in a way that alerts everyone that that horn for that individual is poisoned. And I hope the word is distributed worldwide, especially where selfish (or otherwise uneducated) people are using products made from rhino horns.

Wiping a species of majestic wildlife off the face of the Earth ranks as one of the highest forms of greed and selfishness.
