Seven Arrests Made In U.S. Rhino Horn Trafficking

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadRhinosAnimal Cruelty

Seven people in the U.S. have been arrested in connection with trafficking rhino horns.

The horns are cut from the head of the endangered rhino for ornamental carvings, good luck charms or possible medical purposes, including curing cancer (all of which are unsubstantiated or just plain false).

The assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Environment and Natural Resources Division said:

"The rhino is an animal of prehistoric origin that is facing possible extinction because of an illegal trade for its horns on the black market that is driven by greed."
