Rhinos could face the ultimate threat as traffickers cash in on their horns

Rhino horns are mistaken by some as a traditional medicine that can cure cancer. Others prize it as a party drug—paying more for it than cocaine. Poachers will sell to whoever pays the highest price as they hunt rhinos to the brink of extinction. On this episode of The Traffickers, host Nelufar Hedayat investigates the underground rhino horn trade and explains what surprised her most along the way.

The Traffickers airs Sundays at 10 PM on Fusion.
