Original text on this topic:
The impact of hyaena predation on the black rhinoceros population is unknown but is considered to be fairly high in Hiuhluwe, low in the Corridor and very low in Umfolozi. Kruuk (1972) observed hyaenas grabbing black rhinoceros calves preferentially by the ears and tail at Serengeti which supports the observations in Table 1.
