South African park considers rhino evacuation

South African park considers rhino evacuation | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South Africa's Kruger National Park is considering a plan to move some rhinos out of the flagship wildlife reserve in an attempt to protect them from poachers.
Garry Rogers's insight:

This is not a serious plan.  Poachers can reach any park. 


Poachers represent international invasions into South Africa.  National safety and defense are at stake.  According to the Defense Ministry, the South African National Defense Force (SANDF) is currently in serious decline.  Perhaps a few "advisers" and a few million dollars in aid to the right government agencies would benefit SANDF and encourage a military response.
