Animals  (tags: Deer, antelope, rare, threatened, poachers )

The saola looks like a small deer or antelope with two horns, but is locally known as an Asian "unicorn." They are thought to number from a few dozen to a few hundred, and are threatened by poachers wanting its horns.

Thanks. I thought is was called an Ox. Recently discovered, and on the brink of extinction, I hope the threat of hunting the Saola to extinction is removed with government. support..
