Which authorities said they were injecting the horns with poison?

Agreed on all counts - so the tactics presently include:
1) establishing a DNA database so that a rhino horn can be tracked to the locality the rhino was killed
2) dehorning rhinos (this is not 100% successful since the horns are hair and regrow, but it does help bit)
3) moratorium on sale of ANY rhino horn in ANY form
4) liaison with international authorities - there have been successful prosecutions overseas too.
5) shooting suspected poachers on site (the poachers will - so there seems to be a no-holds barred approach, generally if someone is out without permission in rhino country they have to take their chances). It is just a darned shame rhinos can't be taught how to use automatic weapons and missile launchers to defend themselves...

Just do a google search on "injecting rhino horns" and see what you get.
