Game rangers hold down Spencer the rhino at the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve, near Johannesburg, South Africa, on February 9, 2012. Veterinarians installed a microchip and tracking device into Spencer's horn, and injected it with indelible dye and a toxic compound to make it unappealing to would-be poachers. But the rhino died during the procedure, after going into convulsions and failing to wake up from the tranquilizer.
