Elle Macpherson regrets promoting use of illegal rhino horn remedy

Posted on: July 7, 2010

Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson has said that she is regretting her decision of promoting the illegal rhino horn powder as a Chinese medical therapy.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times Magazine, Machpherson said that she had tasted the rhino horn powder and it had ‘done the job’.

Animal rights activists slammed the 47-year-old model’s comments because she had earlier boycotted a posh London restaurant for serving bluefin tuna, an animal that is an endangered species.

Macpherson said that she had “never knowingly consumed or encouraged the use or consumption of any products which contain material derived from endangered species,” reports News.com.au.

She also said that she regretted “any distress or offence that her banter with an interviewer might have caused”.

Macpherson said that although she had great respect for Chinese medicine she was “fundamentally opposed to any activity which is detrimental to the protection of endangered animals”.
