7 black rhinos die at Tsavo East in unclear circumstances

Seven black rhinos have died in unclear circumstances at the Tsavo East National Park.
The seven were among 14 rhinos that were moved from Nairobi and Lake Nakuru national parks two weeks ago.

The programme was conducted jointly between Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and the World Wide Fund (WWF).

“Translocating wild animals of this size is extremely challenging and not without risk, but black rhinos are under enormous threat so efforts to try and better protect them, such as translocation, are crucial for future generations,” WWF said in a statement on Friday.  Daily Nation
