8 November 2011 – The Shamwari Game Reserve situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa is deeply saddened to announce that it has tragically lost an adult female rhino cow which was tranquillised and the horn gruesomely removed by poachers.

A 22 month old bull calf was also tranquillised and his horn also removed but he was found and taken to the Animal Rehabilitation Centre. His horn was removed with minor damage to his face and Dr Johan Joubert is hopeful that he will recover. The calf also suffered an injured back leg which is carefully being monitored.
