Kenya – The National Wildlife revealed that a 12-year-old black rhino in Kenya’s Lake Nakuru national park has been killed by Poachers.
The rhino died days after the authorities announced that ten of the critically endangered animals had died in a bungled relocation.
To widespread consternation from wildlife and environmental groups, Kenya’s government announced last week that ten out of 11 black rhinos died in May owing to negligence by conservation officers during their relocation from the Nakuru and Nairobi national parks to Tsavo East National Park.
On Monday, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) said on its Twitter account that Poachers killed the rhino in Lake Nakuru national park.
Adding that “Pursuit for poachers is underway.”
