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.
