What happened to Vince was appalling, unforgivable, heinous, heartbreaking, vile, brutal. cruel and a dozen other judgemental words. I can only shake my head in disbelief that a bunch of sub-humans broke into Thoiry Zoo near Paris on Monday night and killed Vince. He was a four year old white rhino.
And after killing him, the murderers used a chainsaw to cut off Vince's front horn before fleeing with their booty. What is wrong with such people? Have they no compassion? No humanity?
And what is wrong with those who revere rhino horn and treasure its presence in eastern medicines? They must be utterly stupid and in dire need of education for of course rhino horn has no value whatsoever in any medicinal concoctions. Quite simply, it does not work! Why can't they grasp that?
If that message could be driven home in China and Vietnam, demand for rhino horn would gradually disappear and the wicked men who kill rhinos would find that their market had entirely evaporated. Then the rhinos could graze in peace or sleep soundly in their zoo enclosures.
I am so sorry Vince. So very sorry..
