Prince William sounds the battle cry over rhino killers

Prince William

Fatherhood is just around the corner for Prince William, but it’s the future of baby rhinos that is concerning him these days.

William, a long-time advocate for species conservation, has been “alarmed” over the latest round of illegal killings of black rhinos at a Kenyan sanctuary.

Over two weeks in December, five rhinos were the victims of poachers, who prize the animal’s horns for their medicinal uses, especially in the Far East.
