Northern white rhino's death leaves just five in the world

Dec. 15, 2014

A northern white rhinoceros that zoo officials said was only one of six left in the world died on Sunday at the San Diego Zoo safari park.

Angalifu, who was about 44 years old, apparently died of old age.

“Angalifu’s death is a tremendous loss to all of us,” safari park curator Randy Rieches said in a statement. “Not only because he was well beloved here at the park but also because his death brings this wonderful species one step closer to extinction.”
