Chad: Four rhinos die according to resettlement action

After a disastrous, failed translocation of the black rhinoceros in Kenya, the majority of the Chad-based copies, has died.

Four of the six rhinos that had been brought in may from South Africa in the Zakouma national Park in Chad, were dead, said the conservation organization African Parks. None of the animals had been killed by poachers.

The black rhinos were flown in may of 4800 km far from South Africa to Chad. During the flight they were cared for by a Team of veterinarians. Already last month, the carcasses of two of the animals were discovered, two further specimens were found dead.

Bad to the new habitat?

The investigation into the deaths of blood were sent, tissue, and stool samples to a laboratory in South Africa, such as African Parks said. So far there is no evidence that the rhinos died of an infection or poisonous plants. In the blood trypanosomes from the Tsetse fly-borne parasites detected were samples. But these will not be accepted as a cause of death.

Rather, the low fat suggested reserves of the dead rhinos that these were not well-adapted to their new habitat, it was said further in the statement of the organization, which operates in Africa, many animal parks and the relocation had been planned together with the authorities of South Africa and Chad.

Further studies of the brain and the spinal fluid could bring potentially new insights about the circumstances of death of the animals.

Eleven dead black rhinos in Kenya

rhinos are threatened with extinction, particularly because they are hunted for their Horns by poachers. In Africa, less than 25,000 rhinos live in the wild, including only 5000 black rhinos. In Chad, the last wild black Rhino in 1972, had been spotted. Northern white rhinos are already extinct, only two copies of life in a reserve in Kenya.

MORE on THE TOPIC of Resettlement in Kenya Who is to blame for the deaths of eleven of the rhinos?

In the summer, were found dead in Kenya all eleven white rhinos. They were just been brought from the Nairobi national Park and Nakuru lake national Park in the East Tsavo national Park. The cause of death was noted in a preliminary report, a excessive salt content in the water source of your new living space. The resettlement was carried out, although there had been concerns about the Suitability of the new habitat.
