Animal Rights Group Wants 50 Cent To Adopt Rhinoceros “Shot 9 Times”

A South African community policing group called eBlockwatch is calling upon 50 Cent to become “Godfather” to a black rhino that was shot nine times by poachers.

The black rhino, named Phila reported survive two poaching attacks where it was shot 9 times, prompting the organization to make the bizarre offer to 50 Cent, who had a similar story.

Andre Snyman of eBlockwatch said, “We want to ask him if he wants to become the godfather of our rhino so that he can create awareness worldwide about rhino poaching.”

According to Snyman, he hopes that 50 Cent will adopt the rhino, which will be renamed “One Pound.”

It is not clear whether 50 Cent accepted the offer or not, but the rapper is known to sue individuals or organizations trying to exploit his image.

In July of 2007, the rapper successfully sued a company called Traffix for $1 million and last year Fiddy sued Taco Bell for an undisclosed settlement for an unauthorized use of his name.
