NEWS - Swazi rhino hunts to be permitted

The BBC has this report on the news that Swaziland will be allowing hunting of the Southern White Rhino. Shame!
Swaziland has 61 white rhinos - the second largest land mammal after the elephant - and space is an issue in the small developing country of one million people and rising.

"Our space is limited and our white rhino populations are reaching ecological carrying capacity for the species," Swazi delegate James Reilly said.
