Black rhinos go the way of the dodo

Posted July 13, 2006 by Evan Tishuk

Like the Carolina Rhinos in 2003, The West African black rhino is now extinct. Kaput. Come on, say it with me, "tragedy of the commons." I think it comes down to a marketing problem. Rhinos don't seem useful enough. Hence, I think we should domesticate small dog-sized pigmy rhinos and offer them as a manly alternative to ponies; they'd be like a cross between a rottweiler, a small horse and a snapping turtle. That thing would never go extinct and it'd keep your lawn shorn like Yankee Stadium.
