BBC is reporting two extremely rare white giraffes have been killed by poachers in north-eastern Kenya leaving only one white giraffe alive. The third white giraffe is believed to be the only remaining white giraffe in the world.

Rangers found the carcasses of the female and her calf in a village in north-eastern Kenya’s Garissa County.

Their appearance is due to a rare condition called leucism, which causes skin cells to have no pigmentation. Watch the video below:

The poachers have not been identified and a motive is not clear at the time.
