Poachers kill one of last two white rhinos in Zambia


LUSAKA (AFP) – Poachers have shot the last two white rhinos in Zambia, killing one and wounding the other, in a night operation at the Mosi-Oa-Tunya national park in Livingstone, an official said Tuesday.


The dead female rhino’s horn was apparently removed.


Zambia’s white rhinos were all killed by poachers but the government managed to acquire six from South Africa in 1993, of which the injured male is the last to survive.
