White bull tahr at Glenmore, South Island of New Zealand

White bull tahr at Glenmore, South Island of New Zealand

White himalayan bull tahr are very rare, occurring at a rate of about 1 in 10,000 animals. This animal was shot by a poacher, trespassing on the owner’s property in the Glenmore area on the South Island, and left to rot, unfortunately.

Thanks to Don Cameron of Pure NZ Hunting for the photo.
