Desperately seeking rhino horn

As an animal lover, Dr Mumbo found this ad that’s just popped up on Craigslist’s Vietnamese site a little hard to swallow – wind up or not.

Rhino horn Craigslist Vietnam


Greetings from the West. We are in desperate need of rhino horn for a bachelor party extravaganza in Jaco, Costa Rica. Word of its miraculous powers have traveled to our shores. We will be partaking in many days of binge drinking and require its curing powers. Without it, I’m not sure if we will survive. But please, we must have proof that the rhino died of natural causes and not the result of poaching. We do not condone poaching and reject any horn from a rhino that has been poached. Therefore, if you have a rhino horn and a signed document from a veterinarian that states the rhino died of natural causes, we are very interested in purchasing your treasured appendage. We look forward to hearing from you. Our lives may depend on it.

Pura Vida!
