Nice!

I'm not sure who's the victim ;-)

Any inside info on the setup? Like, where'd you find the rhino?

I co-operated with a zoo. There aren't many of these running wild in my neck of the woods

Hi,

This is very well done and message is strong. Congratulations !
What will you do with this picture ? You could propose it to WWF or something like that ?

Btw, I added the following text to the image on my website:

"More than 90% of the world's rhinoceros population has disappeared since 1970. They are hunted mainly for their horns, which are sold on the black market in Asian countries such as China, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. The horn is ground into powders for medicinal purposes. They are also used to provide handles for daggers in Yemen."

Was the horn really cut off and why?

Asher, no animal was harmed in the making of this photo

Some game reserve keepers shoot the rhinos with tranquilizer darts and then saw off their horns, to protect the rhinos from poachers.
