Orphaned rhino poached at safe haven

THIS IS WHY WE ARE MARCHING ON 4 OCTOBER IN 116 CITIES!! On World Elephant Day, we get to hear sad news of a 3-year old rhino orphan calf killed by poachers in South Africa at one of the rhino orphanages. Not only was his horn hacked off, the criminals also hacked off his front legs, possibly to use for traditional medicine. The calf was busy recovering from a previous bullet wound, inflicted at the time its mother was slaughtered. In another incident, a calf was rescued after its mother was brutally de-horned while still alive. READ THE REPORT HERE: http://lowvelder.co.za/212960/orphaned-rhino-poached-safe-haven/
