Oh How Sick

In 1993, the country of Zambia received six very rare white rhinos from South Africa. As of last week, only one rhino, a male, is alive, and he is badly wounded.

It seems that some retard poacher shot and killed one of the last two white rhinos.

The Rhino's were in a heavily-guarded zoological park near Victoria Falls in Zambia's tourist resort town of Livingstone, when the shooting took place last week.

I'm not sure how many White rhinos are still in South Africa, or other parts of the world for that matter, but when an animal is endangered, to have it killed, its rather heartbreaking. It;s one thing to stop spiders to existence, but other animals?
