The rhino relocation efforts in Kenya took a turn for the worse when the single surviving rhino of the programme was attacked by lions in Tsavo East national park. The 11 black rhinos were moved from Nairobi and Lake Nakuru national park, where 10 of the critically endangered animals died of stress and poisoning last month due to their drinking contaminated water. An independent inquiry found the conservation officers guilty of neglect. The sole survivor, a female, was attacked by lions earlier this week, and is being treated, but is in a critical state. The six conservation officers have been suspended following the inquiry.
