This footage offers the opportunity to take a closer look at the real cost of poaching, and illustrates the urgency of ongoing efforts to protect rhinos in the wild.
(PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Footage Search announces the release of exclusive new video of a Black Rhinoceros brutally poached for it's horn. Illegally hunted and severely injured, the rhino is examined by game wardens in graphic detail, and is seen alive and walking despite it's wounds in this rare video footage.
Coinciding with the recent news that rhino poaching rates in Africa have reached an all-time high as the illegal trade in rhino horn continues, this dramatic footage was captured by cameraman Rainer Schimpf at the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa. The resulting sequence of HD video clips highlights the importance of this issue, and can be viewed now at NatureFootage.
"This footage offers the opportunity to take a closer look at the real cost of poaching, and illustrates the urgency of ongoing efforts to protect rhinos in the wild." commented CEO Dan Baron.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has declared the West African Black Rhino subspecies extinct as of 2011.
