The Last White Rhino Male Dies In Captivity.

Postby Zero_Sum » Thu Mar 22, 2018 4:37 am

The world's last male northern white rhino has died leaving only two females left to save the subspecies from extinction.

The 45-year-old rhino named Sudan had been in poor health in recent days and was being treated for age-related issues and multiple infections.
A veterinary team made the decision to euthanize Sudan after his condition deteriorated significantly, the conservation group WildAid announced Tuesday.
Sudan lived in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, surrounded by armed guards in the days leading up to his death to protect him from poachers.
"He was a gentle giant, his personality was just amazing and given his size, a lot of people were afraid of him. But there was nothing mean about him," said Elodie Sampere, a representative for Ol Pejeta.
Researchers were able to save some of Sudan's genetic material in the hopes of successfully artificially inseminating one of the two females left, Sampere said.

I guess you were right about the extermination of the whites :(

Luckily we still have unicorns of color, right?

As soon as the rhino died social justice warriors around the world agreed that it was a non-event because he was white. 8) Clearly he benefited from white privilege dwelling in the African Sahara desert. He was privileged in comparison to the darker skinned rhinos, his death celebrated.

Let's not overlook the fact that he was male and likely straight as well. One less white straight male to plague the planet!
