Two rhinoceros are killed everyday for their horrns by poachers in South Africa.

The animal's iconic keratin-based horn is thought to have medicinal benefits in certain parts of Asia, making them highly valuable commodities on the black market.

With 80 dead rhinos already found this year, park rangers in South Africa are taking drastic measures, including sawing off the horn itself in hopes of keeping the animal alive.
