Sad News - Poachers Kill Last Female Rhino in South Africa's Kruger Park


Rhino poaching has reached an all-time high in Africa. The Poachers have killed the last female rhino in South Africa's Kruger Park. The rhino bled to death after having its horn hacked off by poachers. They sawed off the horns with a chainsaw.
Poachers used tranquillizer guns and a helicopter for their heinous activity.
Now there are only 18,000 black and white rhinos in entire Africa, down from 65,000 in the 1970s. How sad.

True.This is really horrible.Conservationists are aghast. Only concerted efforts by international community can save the wildlife of Africa. WWF can certainly take a lead role.
