A U.S. man who paid $350,000 for the right to hunt an endangered African black rhino says he fears for his safety.

Corey Knowlton says that after being revealed as the winner of a controversial Dallas Safari Club auction, he's received death threats and has hired full-time security. He told Dallas television station KTVT that some people "are wanting to burn my house down."
