Original text on this topic:
During the summer of 1959, ten Sumatran Rhinos were captured in the Siak river area: nine females and one male which unfortunately escaped. One of the females was sent to Bogor Zoo where it died in 1961, one went to Basle Zoo where it died in the summer of 1961 of incurable anaemia; and a third, 'Subur', was sent to the Copenhagen Zoo. The rest were released.
