ach, it was the lesser of the two rhino's anyway.
Thats what happens though when areas arent properly supervised.
I thought that there were a few dozen left?
Very sad, can't they paint some of the white ones black?
Slightly misleading title, only the western black sub species is extinct, not the whole species.
I wonder is there actually any genetic difference between a Western Black Rhino and the other sub-species of black rhino other than the location they traditionally live?
When I was in Kenya a few years ago we went looking for Rhino kept in an encloseure that was only a 10 km or so in size for about three hours and never saw even one.
So I can see how it will be very hard to find any in a 2500 km area, it is a great shame if they have all gone, hopefully they were just hiding.
There will be genetically, it might not be very significant mind or even observable.
