SOS Rhino : In the News : Injured rhino rescued in Sabah

Injured rhino rescued in Sabah


KOTA KINABALU: A critically endangered male Sumatran Rhinoceros was rescued and transferred to a wildlife reserve in a two-week operation in the east coast of Sabah.

The rhino, a specie on the brink of extinction, was found wandering at an oil palm plantation neighbouring a forest area in Sabah’s east coast on Aug 5 when the Sabah Wildlife Department launched the rescue.

“It was obvious that the rhino was injured to some degree as it left its forest to a flat terrain of the oil palm plantation,” Dr Senthilvel Nathan, the department’s chief field veterinarian said yesterday.
