Prince William 'appalled' over poaching

2012-02-27 15:57
London – British officials have said Prince William is "appalled by the senseless slaughter" of a rhino, reports The Sun.

The endangered white rhinoceros called Max was shot 17 times in an attempt to remove its horn.

Max was part of a conservation project in Kenya where the prince reportedly spent weeks helping out in 2001.

He met the rhino on later visits to Africa where he also became a patron of the Tusk Trust charity after being moved by the work done with rhinos.

The six-year-old animal had been hand-reared by Ian Craig, the owner of Lewa Wildlife Reserve in Kenya.

Craig is the father of the prince's former girlfriend Jecca Craig.

William's spokesperson told reporters: "The Duke is appalled by the senseless slaughter. He is very upset by the poaching, and Tusk (charity) are keeping him updated."
