Moving on to today's story..poachers are alive and it looks as though they are not threatened by all that we "Animal Activists" have been striving to do!In a newsletter that was sent to me last week from Lewa.Org, Mr. Richard Moller the chief conservative officer reported that on Saturday October 30th at 3.45 a.m, gun shots were heard on the western boundary on the conservancy which resulted to the death of one of the female black rhinos.Her horns had been ripped off and whats worse is that even after hours of security trying to track the poachers, all was in vain and they did manage to get away....
Said to be the oldest female black rhino and one of the conservancy's founding rhinos in 1984, Stumpy gave birth to eight healthy calves during her stay at Lewa Conservancy, most recent birth being only one and a half years ago. Her calf was also injured during the attack and is recovering from a minor wound to the neck.
This is not only devastating but also very disgusting.I condemn all poachers, you ought to be more than ashamed of your selfish and very cruel acts!
