Poachers in Kenya Kill the Rare White Giraffe

POACHERS KILL the only female white giraffe in Kenya and her calf at Ishaqbini Hirola: Conservancy Manager Mohammed Ahmednoor.The remains of two stunning white giraffes that lived at a Kenyan wildlife sanctuary were found in a skeletal state, rangers at the Ishaqbini Hirola Conservancy said on Tuesday. Just one white giraffe, a bull, remains.

The Kenya Wildlife Service has said they are  investigating the incident which is questionable since they are the custodians of the Kenyan wildlife and there has been numerous complaints about poaching.

The female white giraffe first made headlines when she was discovered, alongside her calf, in 2017.

A second calf followed, and the family of three lived a free-ranging life within the confines of the sanctuary, where they generated a lot of interest from tourists around the world.

Visitors flocked to see the family of three, stretching for glimpses from behind the trees.

The mother giraffe and her calf were killed by poachers, they said. The Kenya Wildlife Service was called to the reserve after it was reported the giraffes hadn’t been seen in quite a while.

This is a very sad day for the community of Ijara and Kenya as a whole. We are the only community in the world who are custodians of the white giraffes,” said Mohammed Ahmednoor, manager of the reserve in Garissa County, KenyaJust one white giraffe, a bull, remains.
