11 endangered rhinos were moved to start a new population. 10 died.

(CNN)A tenth black rhino has died in Kenya after wildlife workers relocated the animals to a new national park, a major setback for a critically endangered species.

The rhino was one of 11 moved to the Tsavo East National Park this month. One rhino who survived the transfer was injured by a lion in an attack at its new home, Tourism Minister Najib Balala told reporters Thursday.
Wildlife officials are monitoring the rhino closely as it undergoes treatment, he said.
