Elle Macpherson Admits Using Illegal Rhino Horn TreatmentAustralian supermodel Elle Macpherson freely admits to using the horn of endangered rhinoceroses medicinally, telling England's Sunday Times it "does the job."

In an interview conducted via Twitter, the Times asked 47-year-old model nicknamed 'The Body,' "You're said to be a great fan of Chinese medicine. What does powdered rhino horn taste like?"

Macpherson's response? "A little bit like crushed bone and fungus in a capsule. Does the job though." Pressed about the folkloric beauty treatment's efficacy, the 'Britain's Next Top Model' host simply stated, "Put it this way, works for me."

Angered animal rights activists have begun responding already: "The Humane Society International condemns the poaching of rhinos, particularly for their use in beauty products," HSI's Nicola Beynon told the Toronto Sun. "Ms. Macpherson's actions are reprehensible."
