23 January, our white rhino gave birth to her second calf, once again highlighting the urgency of keeping our rhino safe from poachers. The day before Bella was born we again received specific intel that both our rhino where a target over the next few days.
We upped our security once again, MTN came to the fore within ours of my call for help and placed booster ariel and system up at no charge ( wow )
Our family felt quite strongly that we should de-horn our rhino to keep them from harm, especially as we have been under such constant and specific threat. We had already sold our magnificent male due to ongoing threats....
De-horning is not a suitable option in a lot of cases especially where rhino have to use their horns for protection against other rhino, elephant and lions etc.
