RIP: Diceros bicornis longipes

Humankind is pretty fucked up. Let's hunt species after species to extinction. In this case, it's the Diceros bicornis longipes (West African black rhino), and the reason they've been hunted to extinction? Because their horns can be ground into a powder that's used, among other things, as a fucking aphrodisiac. Real fucking brainiacs (tm) are we humans.
