22 mar: why is a czech zoo de-horning its rhinos? dvur kralove zoo has taken the decision to remove the horns from its white rhinos for their safety. rhino poaching has reached a crisis point after a white rhino was killed for its horn at a zoo in france in early march – the first time a european zoo has been targeted in this way. rhino horn is one of the world’s most expensive commodities, fetching prices of up to $60,000 per kilo as demand increases from markets like vietnam - where rhino horn is thought to have aphrodisiac properties. de-horning is not painful to the rhino as there's no live tissue in it, and the horns grow back eventually. for more on the killing of the rhino in the french zoo: bbc.in/horn #rhino #whiterhino #zoo #conservation #animals #bbcshorts #bbcnews @bbcnews
