STATEMENT: Attack on Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) condemns the Monday night attack on the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in South Africa, during which staff were beaten and brutalized, and at least one rhino calf killed while another had to be euthanized due to the extent of its wounds.

Dr Joseph Okori, Regional Director Southern Africa, said the attack on the orphanage, its staff and care givers, was appalling and tragic.
