Caption: White rhinoceros killed by poachers, Umhlametsi Private Nature Reserve, South Africa. This dead bull white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) was shot by poachers who lost track of it when it ran away. The injured animal eventually died of its wounds before being discovered by Park rangers. Rhinoceros horns are illegally poached and sold for use as ornaments and traditional medicines.
