A friendly giraffe who was orphaned when his parents were killed by poachers has formed a unique friendship with staff at a nearby hotel.
Lonely Eric wandered into the grounds of Elsamere Lodge in Naivasha, Kenya looking for love following the brutal murder of his mum and dad.

There are too many black Africans, armed with the white man’s guns and other killing technologies (Jeeps, airplanes, etc.). Africa’s wildlife stands no chance of surviving unless the black African’s population is dramatically reduced.
Do not donate to any charity that is involved in feeding or improving medical care for the African. There are too many of him and not enough giraffes. Giraffes are far more likable, enriching creatures than the African human species.
Paris (AFP) – Wild giraffe numbers have plummeted by 40 percent in the last three decades, and the species is now “vulnerable” to extinction, a top conservation body warned Thursday.
The population of the world’s tallest land mammal dropped to below 100,000 in 2015, mainly due to shrinking habitat and illegal hunting, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) reported.
The group added 742 newly-discovered birds to the global species inventory, but said 11 percent were already facing annihilation and 13 previously unknown species have already disappeared in the wild.
“These majestic land animals are undergoing a silent extinction,” Julian Fennessy, co-chairman of the IUCN’s specialist group on giraffes, said in a statement.
Previously, giraffes held the status of “least concern” on the IUCN’s Red List, which tracks the conservation status of fauna and flora and ends with the category “extinct”.
Giraffes are spread out across southern and eastern Africa, with smaller pockets in west and central Africa.
Of nine distinct subspecies, four small populations saw increases. But four larger ones experienced sharp declines, and one remained stable, according to the report.
Numbers have crashed in 30 years from an estimated 157,000 to about 97,500 last year, the IUCN said.
The main culprit is the ever-expanding human population, which has caused a spike in poaching and encroachment upon the giraffe’s natural habitat.
“As one of the world’s most iconic animals, it is time that we stick our neck out for the giraffe before it is too late,” said Fennessy.
The report was part of an update of the Red List, unveiled at a meeting in Cancun, Mexico of the 196-nation Convention on Biological Diversity.
The global assessment now covers 85,604 species of plants and animals, of which 24,307 face the threat of extinction.

“Many species are slipping away before we can even describe them,” said IUCN director general Inger Andersen.
The update “shows that the scale of the global extinction crisis may be even greater than we thought,” she said.
Earth has entered a “mass extinction event” in which species are disappearing 1,000 to 10,000 times more quickly than just a century or two ago, according to scientists.
There have been six such wipeouts in the last half-billion years, some of them claiming up to 95 percent of all lifeforms.
The revised Red List now catalogues 11,121 species of birds.
The recently described Antioquia wren of Colombia is now listed as “endangered”, in part because half of its habitat risks being wiped out by a single dam, planned but not yet built.
Most of the newly discovered birds were known but are being recognised for the first time as distinct species.
Those already deemed extinct — preserved in lab and museum specimens — were island-dwellers, making them vulnerable to predatory or disease-carrying invasive species such as mosquitos that transmit avian malaria.
The Pagan reed-warbler from the South Pacific, along with the Oahu akepa and Laysan honeycreeper from Hawaii, are examples.
“Unfortunately, recognising more than 700 ‘new’ species does not mean that the world’s birds are faring better,” said Ian Burfield, science coordinator for BirdLife International, which collaborated in the global assessment.
“Unsustainable agriculture, logging, invasive species and other threats are still driving many species towards extinction.”
Illegal wildlife trade driven by collectors is emptying forests of some species, the reports said.
Such trafficking caused the African grey parrot of central Africa — prized for its ability to mimic human speech — to be reclassified from “vulnerable” to “endangered”.
A recent analysis in Nature of nearly 8,688 “threatened” or “near-threatened” animal and plant species showed that three-quarters are over-exploited for commerce, recreation or subsistence.
More than half are suffer the conversion of their natural habitats into industrial farms and plantations, mainly to raise livestock and grow commodity crops for fuel or food.
A fifth of species are affected by climate change.
If the giraffe, lion, elephant, and other endangered species is to be saved it will be the white man who does the saving. Blacks have long been called “the white man’s burden.” That’s truth!
I feel certain that at this point in history, the smart elephant knows that it’s the white man who is his friend. Fortunately for Tim the elephant, the black African primate on two legs only had a spear, not a high powered gun. Otherwise, Tim would be dead and carved up for his body parts.
Praise be to God for the white man’s small presence in Africa. God save the elephant. And the lion. And the …
One of Kenya’s oldest elephants desperately sought human help after it was struck by a spear in one of its ears.
The 47-year-old bull elephant made its way to a camp of conservationists with a long spear protruding from its forehead.
It was only two years earlier that the elephant, known as Tim, was attacked with a spear in his backside.
Now, the same group of conservationists at Amboseli National Park were surprised to see him find his way back to them, but this time with another injury.
One of those who helped, David Bates, told Daily Nation: ‘As I was counting buffalo calves in one of our sanctuaries, a ranger told me that one of our signature bull elephants was moving quickly towards us. Indeed, it was Tim.
‘I was excited to see him. But then, as he drew closer to us, we realised that something was wrong. Protruding from his head was a spear, and on his forehead was a huge bleeding wound. It appears it was hit with a large rock.’
Mr Bates said the elephant may have been attacked in a conflict with local farmers.
The team had to track the animal throughout the night until the next morning when a vet from Kenya Wildlife Service could step in.
Tim was tranquilized so the spear could be removed. He has since made a full recovery.
The title of the photo is “Wildlife Reserve Worker Weeping Next to Poached Rhino.” Besides the African, the Chinese are complicit in this crime as well, as they desire the Rhino horn for its alleged medicinal qualities.
But there’s a question that must be posed now: Who will weep for the dead white race after the African rampages through Europe and America and white bodies are lined up like so many dead rhinos?

Two men have lost the privilege to hunt in Tennessee, and most of the United States, for life.
Eddy Albert, 21, and Densibel Calzada, 23, both residents of La Vergne, Tenn., might not have known that a permanent hunting ban for poaching deer in Tennessee could also mean no hunting in other states However after illegally killing numerous deer they learned a message that will last them a lifetime.
“Their actions were among the worst I have seen for their lack of respect to our landowners and to our wildlife,” said Matt Brian, a Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency sergeant assigned to Rutherford County.
“Most of our states now abide by what is called the Interstate Wildlife Violator’s Compact, which means a ban in Tennessee is upheld by every compact member,” explained the officer. Albert and Calzada entered guilty pleas Feb. 3 in Rutherford County General Sessions Court.
Their sentence included the hunting bans, thousands of dollars in lawyer expenses and court costs, confiscated rifles and bows, $5,000 each in restitution fees, and at least $1,800 each to post bail.
A jail sentence seems more appropriate to me when someone trespasses, endangers human lives, and shows utter and total disrespect for the law and wildlife. Both of these retrograde miscreants mocked the animals they killed, while taping themselves celebrating their great victories as mighty hunters.
Experience shows that people who practice animal cruelty are dangerous to other people too. Eddy and Calzada will likely reoffend. Police need to keep an eye on them even after their probation ends. If they violate probation, then off to jail with them.
The white man is fighting a losing battle to save Africa’s wildlife, a story featured on this site in many different guises quite a few different times.
The latest battle in the war involved a British pilot shot down while seeking out poachers from the air.

Roger Gower died while tracking poachers in the Maswa game reserve in the north of the country. Officials said his helicopter crashed after being hit by rounds from an AK-47 rifle fired from the ground on Friday.
Gower, 37, and a safari guide, Nicky Bester, were flying low to the ground searching for gunmen who had killed three elephants in the reserve when the gang broke cover and shot at them from the ground with the automatic rifle. A bullet is understood to have passed through the floor of the helicopter, hitting Gower first in the leg then in the shoulder before exiting through the roof.
Despite his injuries Gower managed to fly the helicopter down into a tree preventing a potential explosion and saving Bester, who jumped to safety as the aircraft came down and hid from the poachers in a thicket, wildlife authorities said.
The suitable punishment for poachers is death by a firing squad or by hanging. Now that they’ve killed a kindly human, let that punishment be swift and sure for the lot of them.
The African Negro will never appreciate the wildlife since he is a predator. But the white man has to keep trying to stop it from going extinct. It’s a thankless job that no other race on earth will undertake.
Thank God for the white race. I’m sure the elephants would agree.
