The Danish auction house Bruun Rasmussen has stopped selling rhinoceros horns following complaints from the public and the local chapter of the World Wildlife Fund. “At Bruun Rasmussen we have taken note of the numerous enquiries from the public, and… have decided to tighten up on our ethical guidelines,” it announced in a statement. In December, it withdrew from sale two polished rhinoceros horns, weighing 1.7kg and 4.2kg respectively and estimated at DKr150,000-DKr200,000 (€20,000-€27 000) and Dkr300,000-DKr400,000 (€40,000-€54,000). —Clemens Bomsdorf
