    Black Rhinos In Tanzania Down To 35

     

    The number of Black rhinos in Tanzania dropped to 35 yesterday after poachers killed one in their hunt for the horns that are highly sought-after in parts of the Middle and Far East.

     

    The dead animal was found around midnight in Moru in the Southern section of Serengeti National Park, according to the deputy minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Mr Lazaro Nyalandu.

     

    “The anti-poaching squad discovered this unfortunate incident at around 12:30 am,” he said in Dar es Salaam. “The rhino had bullet wounds and its horns had been chopped off.”

     

    Only 31 of the remaining animals are natives of the Serengeti National Park. The dead rhino was one of the five that were flown to Tanzania last year in a larger group of 32 animals being re-introduced to East Africa’s largest nation from a 50-strong herd.
