Family Welcomes A Wild Animal Into Their Home — With Unexpected Consequences

Poaching is a sad reality in many parts of the world. Animals are killed for their skin, tusks, or horns. Poaching is illegal, but it still happens at an alarming rate. The price poachers earn for the items they steal can be worth a fortune. The lives of the animals are of no concern to the poachers.

Rhinos are frequent victims of poachers. You may have read some of the stories recently about Rhinos being shot and killed for their horns.

The baby rhino you see here is Sudan. Sudan’s mother was killed by poachers in Kenya. Sudan was taken in and given a home.

What makes Sudan so incredibly special is that he is the only northern white rhino in the world! All the others of his kind are gone.

She was left to die after the attack. The poachers don’t care about the rhino’s life – they just want the horn.
