As posted here on Cryptomundo, the WWF [and in light of the title of my post here, perhaps I should clarify, the WWF (formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund)] released yesterday what they claim is the first footage of the elusive Borneo rhino.
However, as reported by the Associated Press, another group, SOS Rhino, is claiming that they have that honor.
However, SOS Rhino, a Chicago-based wildlife foundation, said in September last year that wildlife rangers on one of its expeditions had taken a video clip and photos of a single male Sumatran rhino, also in Sabah, after a decade-long search.

Shown here is the SOS Rhino video, which was uploaded to youtube on March 9, 2007.
Seems we have a controversy in the rhino research field.
