    @spike.t shared this story with me earlier today.

    Bloody sad story.

    It is astounding to have these animals not being cared for properly.
    All that expense and effort and no one thought to have clean water available!

    I hope the plan for any future translocations are managed by someone who has a clue.

    The Kenyan Govt states that 9 rhinos were poached in the last year. The Govt veterinarians had to put down the last Northern White Rhino, "Sudan", recently. Now the Govt Veterinarians have botched the transfer, and killed 8 more rhinos..........Poachers = 9 Kenya Government = 9 at this point. Even Steven. I also see that the Senior Govt Veterinarian at the Univ of Nairobi now realizes that rhinos need water..........FWB

    Sad really. The people charged with moving the animals should face charges.

    maybe they should not get water or only salt water also. Then maybe the next people in charge will be more careful
