PRETORIA -- The fate of a tame rhinoceros whose career as a television and film star was brought to an end by heart disease will be decided in a South African court.

Animal welfare organization San Wild Wildlife Trust would like to see "Baixinha" sold to live out her remaining days in South Africa's Limpopo Province, the **** Citizen **** newspaper reported Wednesday.

The South African Ministry of Environmental Affairs and Tourism would rather enroll the rhino in a controversial "canned hunting" program whereby tame animals are placed in worry-free hunting reserves for rich customers.

San Wild has according to DPA gathered 36,000 signatures from Baixinha's fans against the government plan, the organization said.
