        紧随4起创纪录的非法象牙罚没案件,八头犀牛上周末在南非被残酷杀害,这使得人们为逐利而对非洲野生动物进行的残忍、血腥杀戮再次成为世人关注的焦点。

        死亡的8头犀牛——包括7头成年犀牛和一头幼仔——在南非西北省的一座农场被发现,牠们遭到了枪击及刀砍,并被割去了犀角。令人震惊的是,牠们还被挖掉了眼睛,切掉了耳朵,一头雌性犀牛的生殖器官也被切掉了。

        加上这起残杀事件,2012年在南非被杀的犀牛总数已增至558头,已严重超过2011年的448头和2010年的333头。上周南非法院宣判了至今为止针对野生动物犯罪最严厉的一个判决——一名泰籍罪犯因贩卖犀角被判刑40年。
