Fewer than 5,000 black rhinos are thought to exist in the wild, and in an effort to preserve the species, the Dallas Safari Club is offering a chance to kill one.
The hunting organization is auctioning off a permit to hunt a rhinoceros in Nambia. It's a fundraiser intended to help save the larger population. The group has said it hopes to raise at least $250,000, and perhaps up to $1 million.
The group cites support from several scientists and rhino experts.
