The Dallas Safari Club in Texas has auctioned off the chance to kill an endangered black rhino in Namibia. The auction raised £212,000 for the Namibian government, which says it will be earmarked for conservation.

So is this a great way of raising money for the protection of the species, or is it creating a spectacle of killing endangered animals?
