[Photos] World's Last Male Northern White Rhino Passes Away As Species Becomes Technically Extinct

Submitted by: wolladude 10 months ago in News & Politics

It's another sad day for spaceship earth.

Sudan, who was 45, lived at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. He was put to sleep on Monday after age-related complications worsened significantly. His death leaves only two females - his daughter and granddaughter - of the subspecies alive in the world.

A species gone so Asian men can get a placebo hard on.

Humanity sucks, all we do is destroy, all our economy does is convert the living to the dead.  As a species we don't deserve to last; most certainly our arrogance and self importance will be our downfall.  Republicans like Trump and climate change deniers are the harbingers of death and the epitome of stupidity.

They could try artificial insimination But that depends on the male
If the only sperm thay have from the parent any offspring would be so riddled with genetic abnormalities due to inbreeding the white rhino would be doomed anyway.

The fact that we as humans hunted this animal to extinction is absolutely fucking insane. I am so sorry to say this but the only problem with the world we live in today is US.

Gerry1of1 I am not sure if they are going to try artificial insemination or just cross breeding, but hopefully it works out.

Man has destroyed enough things, losing a rhino species for magical dick powder (proven not to work btw) is as petty and pitiful as it gets.
