Samuel Mutisya, head of conservation at Ol Pejeta Conservancy said about giant white rhino, Sudan.
They added for the last 9 years, Sudan has been an integral part of the Ol Pejeta family and it is extremely hard to come to grips with the reality that he is gone forever.
He was unable to stand up and suffered a great deal in his last 24 hours, Sudan was put down by veterinarians at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
Because of its extinction, the researchers trying to preserve the creature by engaging In vitro Fertilization (IVF) techniques.
