It is terminally "rare", as in extinct!

Most guide books still record it as being a Kruger species, but I'm afraid the reintroduction in the 80's was a pipe-dream!

Easy one:

Due to the presence of this mammal in the parks and the possibility of interbreeding, the personnel living in the parks were told that they cannot keep domestic cats as pets. What mammal is this? :D
