Original text on this topic:
There needs to be one law on rhino products for all the provinces. In fact, there needs to be a general rationalisation of nature conservation legislation.
At the moment horns are identified as follows:-
Natal, numbered with a steel pnch, front horn measured along the front edge, rear horn measured vertically;
Transvaa1, number painted on base, horn weighed
Pilanesberg, number painted on base, horn weighed and measured:
S.W.A., weighed and measured:
Zimbabwe, a master card per horn is also kept at head office.
In an effort to clean the slate, perhaps all horn receipts could be recalled, the horns individually identified, and then new receipts issued. The police regard this step as very important.
