Poachers are only after the ivory horns right? I read this story from the New York Times ( I think) of saving a Rhinocerous by some Park Rangers and a Vet. ( forgive spelling) ; they tranquilized the Rhino and took its horn off so it wouldn't be killed. I know Rhinos need their horns so maybe a hard plastic 'prosthesis' could be put in its place. Maybe the 'prosthesis' could be colored yellow or have some markings on it so any poacher would know it's fake. Of course this could all be done for the elephant too.
Could this be a feasible way to save Elephants or Rhinos??
