Rhino deaths: Concern over poaching

Poachers in South Africa have slaughtered a record 455 rhinos in South Africa so far this year, already surpassing the record annual tally for 2011, the government said Tuesday. South Africa has seen a dizzying spike in the pace of rhino slaughters fuelled by the lucrative Asian black market trade in rhino horn. Orphanages for the animals have their work cut out, as they attempt to take care of young rhinos left behind.
