In August 2011, The Guardian reported that yet another rhino had been found killed in South Africa. With a reported 448 rhinos poached in South Africa in 2011, this story was tragic but certainly not an anomaly. But for the first time, the rhino had a name -- Izzy -- and a story. With the help of illustrator Steven Womack, we are proud to share the story of Izzy the Rhino with you.
Though this story reads like a fable, parental discretion is advised.
