Would you pay $350,000 to put your family's life in danger AND murder an endangered species??
Sounds kinda way ridiculous but that's pretty much what's going on for Corey Knowlton.
Knowlton paid $350,000 to the Dallas Safari Club Auction for a super rare permit to hunt an endangered black rhino.
Animal conservationists everywhere are freaking out that this hunting permit even exists.
Knowlton has tried to explain to his critics how letting him buy the permit has sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to a cause that will actually SAVE more black rhinos, but also how it's okay to kill one… as long as it's specific.
The Namibian government has apparently picked out specific rhinos that can and SHOULD be killed because they're not only too old to breed but they're also grumpy old men who pose an actual threat to healthy, young rhinos.
