The $laughter of Rhinos
The $laughtering of Rhinos
Animal Parts for Profit
Above all, Africa is most famous for its spectacular wildlife. Many of the animals that grace its lands are found nowhere else on Earth.
After serving in both the Iraq, and Afghanistan wars, and having seen enough fighting, Steve Bannon decides to retire from military life.
He joins his wife, a doctor who is part of a United Nations medical team, heading toward Zimbabwe to help contain that countries latest cholera outbreak.
By chance, Bannon stumbles upon and kills a group of men slaughtering an innocent Rhino for its horn. He is sickened by the disturbing scene and starts to investigate the wildlife poaching trade.
He soon discovers that Rhino horn is more valuable than Diamonds, Gold or Drugs. Worse, because of the illegal trade, all of Africa’s most iconic animals are now at risk of extinction.
Bannon goes to the Zimbabwe Government to help stop the slaughter. But, not only do they refuse, he discovers they are a major player in the illegal trade.
Desperate to save Africa’s wildlife from poaching, with nowhere else to turn, Bannon calls upon some of his ex-military buddies to take on the impossible task of becoming these animals guardian angels.
Unable to stop his small group of heroes, Bannon soon learns the hard way that these corrupt officials will do anything to protect their poaching operations and their profits.
Zimbabwe Officials enlist a platoon of highly trained North-Korean mercenaries to kill Bannon, his squad and everyone in the village, including Bannon’s wife and her medical team.
Will Bannon and his small band of wildlife champions be able to fend off the approaching company of sordid killers?
Or will they and everyone in the village be slaughtered, leaving the unprotected animals to continue there, for profit, march toward extinction?
