And the 195 are either on mineral deposits the Chinese want... or hold rhinos on private zoo preserves (that everyone wants to kill to sell to asians).

Source? Also, why would the chinese government destroy rhino horns and persecute smugglers and then start rhino farms for horns...?

? ? ?

The rhinos are to be killed as soon as the rhino farms are seized. Why? For money.... asian customer money.

In fact one of the first two farms being seized has some private rhinos on it ! (coincidence? )

What? Says who? And why would China make the trade illegal and heavily prosecute it and then suddenly make it state-sponsored? You're not making any sense.

Yes, absolutely. Literally none of the things you say about farms have any connection to China. It's "farms will be seized" to "some of these farms are in the general vicinity of some potential mines" to "China is paying for it all". None of this makes any sense.

Controlling supply to boost prices?

What is the point of that? China makes no money off of it, quite the opposite. They spend money to eradicate the smuggle, why would they suddenly want in on it? They have no interest in this superstitious bullshit. Unlike American politics, China is driven by pragmatism.
