    Rhinos would face another issue they already do in Africa. Seething livestock farmers who think the Rhinos will kill their cattle. Aussie farmers won't tolerate them

      Chinamen turn into regular civilized cucks when the CCP lose the grasp on them. They won't greet you with a "Have you eaten already my fellow bugman?" like they do in their mainland.

    There are rhinos in India already, there's no need to put them elsewhere.
    Also the real reason is farms and farmers. You don't need another reason to not put them there, this one completely dismantles the idea.

    In addition, black rhinos (the only rhinos particularly suited to very arid enviroments) are very susceptible to iron poisoning, a big problem if they were stuck in the giant iron dustbowl that is australia

    If i remember correctly SA started rhino horn farms, which should put an end to the fricking poaching, seeing as how you just need to put the animal to sleep to cut the horn and it grows back.

      But after the rhino loses the horn, it can't make money anymore and it will be expensive to maintain. Won't they just cull them soon and keep just a few to reproduce? I wouldn't mind it if they used its meat to feed people, but I doubt that

        Governments the world over refuse to acknowledge endangered species, especially critically endangered ones, so that they don't have to enact no-build zones or do paperwork or blah blah this blah blah that.

                Mountain Lions are actually descended from South American invaders. There a population bottleneck with them because all of the North American Mountain Lions died at the end of the Pleistocene.
                >bears
                American Brown bears are genetically almost indistinguishable from their Siberian counterparts, because they are mostly descended from Eurasian invaders that came over 12,000 years ago

                good man, the only sane response, other nations should collaborate to exterminate these pests instead of funding proxy war #8943450 or propping up cannibal warlord #21019. Too bad most hunting of various animals is out of myopic avarice rather than pragmatic defense.
