You've surely heard about the various scams and thefts conducted by wildlife traffickers anxious to acquire rhino horn by any means. Museums and personal collections throughout Europe and in Africa have been robbed and trophy shipments hijacked. Always, the destination of the horns has been the Far East, particularly Vietnam. Now two California businessmen have been convicted of rhino horn trafficking, admitting in court that they purchased rhino horn intending to sell it overseas and bribing Vietnamese Customs officers to ensure clearance of the horns into that country. The two will be spending the better part of four years in prison for their crimes. They will also be paying more than $800,000 in fines and seized assets to the Multinational Species Conservation Fund. This is a fund managed by US Fish & Wildlife Service to support rhino conservation efforts in Africa. You can read more about the convictions and the fund in a press release issued by the US Fish & Wildlife Service on The Hunting Report website under Website Uploads.
