Video: Nkepile Mabuse Talks to Julian Rademeyer About Rhino Poaching
Julian Rademeyer, author of Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade, was recently interviewed on the rhino horn trade by CNN’s Nkepile Mabuse.
Mabuse looks at a video of a pseudo-hunt conducted by rhino horn trafficker Chumlong Lemtongthai, who is currently serving a 40 year jail sentence in South Africa, and then speaks to Rademeyer about rhino poaching and wildlife trafficking. Rademeyer explains that rhino horn is worth more than gold, cocaine or heroin. He also speaks about the disconnect that the people buying rhino horn products have from the pain and destruction that they’re causing.
