    Default Rhino horn trade unbanned?

    So do we think this is a good or bad thing?
    I don't know how to start a poll here but maybe it would make a good one.

    If they can get it at a lower legal price, why poach.. I suppose that is the end goal.

    Personally I think that it is a good thing.

    Add value to something and everyone would want to farm it.
    Do you think that farmers enjoy spending 50-100k per month on security only to guard something that has no "value" to it?

    Take potatoes, if you couldn't sell potatoes no one would farm them.

    I think that it is the best shot that this species has for survival.

    I agree the problem is the rest of the world has still banned it. There is no reason to kill a rhino for its horn it can be harvested.
