Poisoning Rhino horns to save species in South Africa

Rhino Rescue Project has infused 700 horns with the toxins and has since lost only 2 rhinos to poachers.

    The survival of the rhino is under threat.

    That is according to the World Wildlife Fund, which says that more than 8,000 rhinos have been poached for their horns since 2010.

    They are killed to meet the high demand for horns in Asia.

    But in South Africa, the staff at a wildlife reserve say they have found a way to try and save the species.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
