Poachers Kill Rhino For His Horn At French Zoo

Animals, Animals In Need, Wild Animals
A rhino has been shot dead by poachers at a zoo in France in what is believed to be the first such incident in Europe. Keepers found Vince, a four-year-old white rhino, in his enclosure at Thoiry Zoo on Tuesday morning. One of his horns had been hacked off with a chainsaw, police said. The African rhino's horn commands high prices on the black market, with about 100 killed every month in the wild. However, this is thought to be the first time poachers have targeted a rhino living in a European zoo. Vince was shot three times in the head after poachers forced their way into the zoo overnight. They then took the horn - a kilo of which could fetch as much as $60,000 (£49,300). But the poachers appear to have been disturbed as his second - partially sawn - horn was left behi

Man Peers Into The Darkness, Then Sees Large Snake! Man Peers Into The Darkness, Then Sees Large Snake Wrapped Around Massive White Cluster. In the darkness, a flash of white contrasts against a mound of dark-brown coils as a man’s head hovers above. A snake handler leans over a ledge that sections off the patio area from the wooded portion of a woman’s backyard. As he peers through the gap, his head comes dangerously close to a large python protectively curled up in the shadows. In the center of her dark-brown-patterned coils rests a large cluster of stark-white eggs. Max, the Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher, scoops some dirt and brush from around the body before gently sliding his hand under her and slowly tugging her body out into the open. amzn_assoc_ad_type = "banner

Depressed bears are force to live in a concrete pit zoo.  In a the photographs taken at an Italian zoo, a brown depressed bear leans his body against the concrete pit wall of his enclosure. He looks desperate, depressed, despondent. He stares up, seeming to search for a way out. This bear isn't the only one — two other bears in the enclosure look equally depressed. "It's very sad," Gaia Angelini, a campaigner for LAV Nazionale, an animal welfare group in Italy, told The Dodo.

For legal reasons, Angelini isn't able to reveal the name of the zoo where the three brown bears live, or its exact location, but she said that the conditions are as

Deer Gives Birth To Beautiful Fawn, Then Another Baby Suddenly Emerges. Giving birth is a blessing, and a beautiful, untouchable memory for any mom. Whether you’re a human, a cheetah, a panda, a pig, or a deer, the strength a mother shows when giving birth is incomparable. The mother, ultimately, is showing the circle of life within minutes, hours, or days, depending on labor circumstances and species. And when that new little life is born, the mother has a new purpose: to take care of that baby until it’s old enough to take care of itself. While every birth may be different, and every experience may depend on the species that is giving birth, they’re all incredibly fascinating. And when this beautiful doe lay down in a woman’s backyard, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity
