Original text on this topic:
They have also fixed dung places and each beast has its own wallow. This unfortunate habit helps the poachers to kill them by the pit method. The rhino struggles vigorously inside the small, pit and finally breaks its neck. The poachers usually wait for the signal of the flying vultures, then appear at the dead of night to collect the horn only.
