Rare white rhino dies in U.S.

Until Sunday there were only four white northern rhinos left in the whole world.

Now there are just three after the death of Nola at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in California.

The 41-year-old animal had been suffering from a bacterial infection which set in after surgery to drain a pelvic abscess.

Vets had been keeping an eye on her as her appetite and activity levels declined last week.

The rhino, weighing in at nearly two tonnes, was put down when her condition worsened.

Nola’s gentle nature and love of having her back scratched made her a favourite of zoo staff.
