Poaching is an ongoing global epidemic that is mercilessly killing innocent animals, pushing endangered species to the brink of extinction, and damaging our planet’s naturally rich biodiversityRhinos are often the target of poachers who seek their horns to sell on the black market for bogus “medicinal reasons;” when in fact their horns are made of keratin, the same substance human fingernails are composed of.

One of these awful poaching attacks against rhinos occurred this past June in Natal Lion Park in South Africa. Maxine the white rhino was asleep at the park when poachers broke in, shot and killed her, and sawed off her tusk. Maxine was eleven years old and arrived at Natal Lion Park as a baby orphan who needed to be bottle fed. This gentle giant was a favorite of everyone at the park, and her brutal death has brought many grievances to those who knew her.

The poachers who committed this heinous crime have not been caught. If anyone has information regarding the case, please contact authorities.

petition on Care2 addressed to the South African Government is demanding justice for Maxine. The petition states over 1,000 rhinos are poached each year in South Africa alone. The simple truth is the earth cannot compete with the rampant poaching occurring across the globe. Extinction is forever, and the loss of one species will, in turn, affect all other living species.

Please take a moment to sign this petition asking the South African Government to pursue this criminal case and punish those who are guilty to the full extent of the law. And please share this story with your network to help seek support for the cause!

Signed already, but I\'ll say this here, as well: put a bounty on poachers. Sell their heads in the town square, for more than the cost of ivory. Start a new collector\'s fad. Yeah, I\'m a mean bastard when it comes to things like this.

Find and execute the poacher, his customers, those that traffic and the government officials that enable this.
