A mural painted on a suburban wall in Johannesburg, South Africa calls for the halt to rhino poaching, Monday, July 21, 2014. Officials at Kruger park, South Africa's flagship wildlife reserve, are considering a plan to move some rhinos out of the park in an attempt to protect them from poachers. A spokesman said that no decision has been made on the plan adding that the idea would be to "spread the risk" to other reserves because the Kruger park is heavily targeted by poachers, many of whom cross from neighboring Mozambique.
