Hi,

No, that rhino is actually dead. His horn has been cut off.

We got told by the manager at Afsaal that it got burnt in the planned fire 2 weeks ago that got out of control. They had to shoot it and two others because it was running around in agony for two weeks from the burn marks.

They said that they had to cut the horn off because of poachers.

But I don't know if that's true or not.

Hi GlenD,

It was taken just a few km's down the road from Afsaal Picnic Spot.

I think it might have been poached.
