Eight critically endangered black rhinos died after being moved to a new reserve in southern Kenya, the government said Friday, doubling the number of deaths from similar operations in the previous dozen years. Kenya’s Tourism and Wildlife Minister Najib Balala ordered the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) to “immediately suspend the ongoing translocation of black rhinos following the death of eight of them,” according to a ministry statement. KWS, the government body responsible for the country’s wildlife, has not commented on the deaths.
