Poaching the african rhino
When the reserve keepers take the horn off the rhino so it is targeted less by poachers. Keepers tranquilize the rhino and put a towel over eyes and in ears. The towel is so that the rhino does not know what is happening and does not attack. Then keepers take a chainsaw and take off the horn. The Chainsaw Massacre was the worst rhino dehorning so far in Africa. Rhino horns are a big profit in the Black Market.
