Baby Rhino Gertjie Can’t Sleep Alone

If you haven’t seen this on the News section of this website I thought it would be wise to repost it here. This video is of baby Rhino Gertjie who was found crying beside his butchered mother. She was killed for her horns. Poaching for Rhino horns are as much a problem as are poaching elephants for their ivory tusks. After I saw this story I watched this video and it brought tears to my eyes. How could anyone do this – kill another living creature so carelessly just to get what they want? That isn’t human to me.

Gratefully Gertjie was found and taken in by Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre in South Africa. Being traumatized by his mother’s killing he will not sleep alone. Words cannot express how I feel watching this. I feel so much for Gertjie.
