Extinction looms for the East African antelope

The National Geographic News reports on November 8, 2011 that with only 400 remaining in the wild due to drought, habitat loss and unrestricted hunting, extinction looms for the East African antelope known as the hirola, which would mean the end of not only its species but an entire genus of animals of this kind.
