Original text on this topic:
After an 86-year hunting ban, the authorities allowed the species to be placed back onto the South African hunting licence. Since then, more than 300 have been taken by trophy hunters, some of whom are willing to pay upwards of a premium R 130 000 for the best trophy head. There are many people who find this thought detestable, but do not forget that the decision to hunt rhino was based on the excellent recovery of the species.
