Texas safari club is raising money for endangered black rhinoceroses by auctioning off a permit to hunt and kill one in Namibia. Despite criticism, Dallas Safari Club director Ben Carter insists the DSC is committed to conservation and says the permit may raise $500,000. "This is about saving the black rhino," Carter said. Whoever wins the permit to kill the black rhino, he said, will be "someone who wants to make a major statement about how much they believe in conservation."
