With one conservationist group already declaring the Black Rhino extinct, it's truly a loss that the Denver Zoo had to euthanize the 9th oldest Black Rhino in the world.
George, the Rhino had been with them since 1984.
Zookeepers had been monitoring him for a while for various health reasons including diverticulitis, chronic diarrhea and continued weight loss.
They finally made the decision to euthanize him when he was no longer able to stand up in his indoor habitat.
After performing a necropsy they found that his spleen had ruptured.
It's so sad to see an endangered, possibly extinct animal have to die, but it's for the best, because his suffering is now over.

Ryan Gosling loves his dog George. It's so cute.
The two seem inseparable. Even though George is a big dog, he's often seen being carried by Ryan.
Ryan even takes George places where he's not welcome. Like yoga class.

Ryan Gosling and his doggy, George, were seen walking in Runyon Canyon.
He's probably taking a break from filming his new movie Gangster Squad.
Keeping that gorgeous bod in shape and spending some quality time with his furry friend. Nice.
Look at that doggy panting… must be hot out. Maybe Ryan should take off his shirt… LOLz!
