In this photo taken Friday, Nov. 22, 2012, Miles Lappeman, owner of Finfoot Lake Reserve near Tantanana, South Africa, and his son Marc, right, walk past the carcass of a rhino. South Africa says at least 588 rhinos have been killed by poachers this year alone, 8 rhinos at the Finfoot Lake Reserve, the worst recorded year in decades. The number has soared as buyers in Asia pay the U.S. street value of cocaine for rhino horn, a material they believe, wrongly, medical experts say, cures diseases. (AP Photo/Denis Farrell)
