The largest rhino breeder in South Africa, John Hume, held a very controversial rhino horn auction on the 23rd August. 264 rhino horns were open to registered online bidders for over 72 hours.
Hume owns over 1 500 rhinos in the North West province. He trims his Rhinos’ horns harmlessly while they are under sedation to deter poachers from killing them for their horns. The horns regrow naturally, making the selling of rhino horn a great opportunity for a sustainable trade.0
