We just visited Zimbabwe and went on a jeep safari ride and dinner in the Vic Falls game reserve. Our guide "Papa Joesph" was knowlegable and patient. We viewed the 5 black rhinos. They stayed right around us for about half an hour. Their horns had been cut down. I missed the explanation for this and was wondering why? The whole safari was an amazing experience. You will want to donate to the anti-poaching unit after you experience these magnificent creatures at such close range. Carol Downs

rhino horns cut off

The Rhino horns are cut off to deter poachers. They will kill a rhino for the horn. Often they will still kill a rhino for the stump of the horn. My family ran a game farm in Zimbabwe for years, and they had to hire armed guards 24 hours a day to babysit the rare Rhino and protect them from slaughter
