South Africa: fight over rhino poaching escalates

FILE - In this Friday, Jan. 18, 2013 file photo a mural painted on a suburban wall in Johannesburg, South Africa calls for the halt to rhino poaching in a bid to save the species from extinction due to killings for the rhinos horn. A U.S. firm recently gave smart phones to some game rangers in South Africa to help them track poachers who kill rhinos for their horns. The rate of poaching in South Africa _ home to most of Africa’s rhinos _ in 2013, is on track to exceed the record number of illegal kills in 2012, conservation officials say.
