The removal of rhino horn in South Africa is a measure to protect the endangered rhino population from poachers. Rhinoceros horns are in high demand on the black market, as they are seen as a medicine or status symbol in certain cultures. By cutting and removing the horns under anaesthesia, the rhinos become unattractive to poachers, which helps to reduce poaching.

During this procedure, it is extremely important to carefully monitor the health of the rhino to minimise the risk of stunning. This is where the Televet device is used, which allows continuous monitoring of the rhino’s electrocardiogram (ECG). This allows the vet to closely monitor the rhino’s condition and react to any changes in time, ensuring the animal’s safety throughout the process.
