The Seneca Park Zoo’s eight-year-old male white rhino, Roscoe, is leaving the zoo in mid-June.
Bill, Roscoe’s exhibit mate and half-brother, will remain at the Zoo. While he will not be getting a mate right away, the keepers will be paying extra attention to him.
Officials tell us Roscoe is headed to The Wilds in Ohio to start his own family. “Roscoe is genetically valuable and it is important for the long-term health and sustainability of the white rhino population for him to start his own family,” said Larry Sorel, County Zoo Director. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the Seneca Park Zoo to contribute to this critically important effort.”
