    Yup, I spend a lot of time in Kruger Park, it's only about 30km from my house, it is not the place to be on foot.
    If elephant are just dumb animals, I wonder what made this one attack the poacher? It's not something they do for no reason, they are not preditors.
    Oh well, one more that won't slip through the courts on some technicality.

    More good news this weekend.
    2 people were arrested after being found with 167 rhino horn in their vehicle, destined for China & Vietnam. Let's hope they rot in jail for the rest of their lives. At the moment rhino horn fetches about $60,000 US per kg and the average adult rhino horn weighs about 4kg. That's a staggering $240,000 per animal and this haul would be worth about $40,080,000. Now to catch the rest of the players in this particular chain.

    Until the people in south east Asia come to their senses, the poaching of rhino will not end until they are extinct and at the current rate they will no longer exist by 2025 at the outside. To a person earning in the region of $145 per month the risks of being caught poaching is worth it.

    That’s the problem...as long as there is a hefty market for rhino horn, there will be poaching...regardless of the risk

    Holy shit that is a huge amount of value per horn, they definitely need to kill the demand for the horn

    I had absolutely no idea how valuable those horns were, I'm floored by those numbers.

    Money and corruption go hand in hand. In this country the law is just a word.
    There is a case on the go at the moment where two poachers were caught red handed, excuse the pun, with two rhino horn still dripping with blood and blood all over their clothes, about half a mile from a reserve fence. In addition they had a hunting rifle and an axe which after testing had the same blood as the horns all over it.
    Now you tell me how the hell this works, but the case has been in and out of court over a period of 7 years and there is still no conviction.
    Oh, by the way, one of the poachers was a cop.

    Imagine how many people are involved in trying to cover up over a 7 year period and how much money has changed hands.

    That is truly sad, and just shows how much of a struggle good people like you have to try to put a stop to the slaughter.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
