It seems that a whole paragraph is missing from my post you commented on. I commented on another park that I visited that had 5 rhino's die in a matter of weeks, when we queried it at a "friends of "X" meeting we where given an outright lie by the staff who told us that no rhino's had died. a few months later 50/50 covered the story and the truth came out. Apparently the elies had killed the rhino's. A few Kruger bulls where introduced and the problems stopped. You might recall this..
The point i was making is that at times people give out false info to keep things quiet. they may have a very good reasons for doing this, the point I was making is that it does happen.. this is understandable as animal rights groups can sometimes be a pain in the @$$ and make things more difficult than they were to start off with. (animal rights groups also play a good role in society, but they have their place, so i am not mocking them either)
Megan the missing paragraph (removed by a mod because it contained the name of the park) makes this article look very ugly towards SANparks, that was not my intention, i actually never knew the whole paragraph was removed, i thought the moderator removed only the name of the park.. because its not a sanparks.. After being lied to by the staff members of that park, i never returned to that park, in fact i had attended the meeting to become a member of their friends of the park club, because I love wildlife and wanted to help. Needless to say i never did.
Anyway I apologize for getting the feathers all turned up so early on a Monday morning, not my intention.
I was just emphasizing the point that at times people give misleading info to stop stories from spreading, as in the case of X park. Peter is a forum member and usually gives great info and pics, when I saw he was advised
not to post hearsay on the forums.
I thought it good to provide the example above to show that sometimes things are not hearsay and that it would be wrong to keep your mouth when clearly someone provided misleading info.
I know you always provide good info and thanx for clearing things up re the Rhino issue.. I know you did not provide any misleading info and know you will not do so ever. (the reason whjy u have not told us what did happen to that bagged rhino means it must be confidential and everyone can understand that)
I can also not say that your rangers provided info that was false, so i apologize for implying this.
However neither one of us was actually on location when the whole hearsay event unfolded, the forum member who was there and actually did have said conversation is told not to post hearsay? This doesn't seem like a friendly way to treat forum members, people who offer valuable info that they personally heard and seen?
Megan you do a great job here in the forum and for that I commend you
please keep it up, its great reading your posts.
I also feel Peter provides great feedback
and just don't want him to stop giving feedback because some feel he provided hearsay. Hope you understand where I am coming from.
ps. a note to mods - if in future you edit my posts pls let me know exactly what phrase was removed, then i know before the time and can edit before i get my fingers burned.. Don't wanna be in Megan's bad books
