中國從1993年起已禁止買賣犀牛角,但至今仍非常容易買得到。一個非政府組織花了十一個月的揭露了犀牛角供應商的主要人物、網絡及走私工具。調查指犀牛角主要從越南進入中國,穿越山徑或非官方港口進入境內。更雇用孩子幫忙走私,因他們年輕只會被罰款而不用坐牢。

china banned the selling of rhino horn since 1993, but it’s still very easy to get them in china. an NGO spent 11 months to investigate the illegal rhino horn trade and reveal key persons, networks and methods of traffickers. rhino horns and other illegal wildlife products are smuggled from Vietnam into china through mountain trails or unofficial ports. dealers would hire children to smuggle the products because they are too young for jail and would only need to pay for small fines.
