Sudan the rhino finds himself in an extremely pre-
carious position: He is the last male northern white
rhinoceros on the planet.
According to The Independent, the 40-year-old
animal has been put under 24-hour armed guard in
the Kenya game conservancy where he lives. There
is hope that Sudan will one day be able to produce

GEORGE TOWN---Police say nearly two dozen
packages of cocaine have washed up on a beach in
the Cayman Islands.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said
Tuesday that a bag containing 23 packages of cocaine
was spotted by residents along the southeast coast
of Grand Cayman island.
Police estimated the value of the recovered drugs
at roughly $425,000.
In a statement, police in the tiny British Caribbean
territory said it is "not unusual to see drugs wash
ashore in the Cayman Islands from time to time."
They praised residents for reporting the find.

and territories are vulnerable as drug transshipment
