Biodiversity challenge – Przewalski’s horse

Hold your horses

Experts were inclined to think
Przewalski’s horse was on the brink,
That in due course this horse would be
Pronounced extinct for all eternity.
But its name had the rare distinction
Of being pretty unpronounceable,
So imminent equine extinction
Proved eminently unannounceable.

When asked to comment, one horse said:
‘Reports of our demise were pure manure,
And captive breeding means we won’t be needing
Epitaphs just yet; it would be premature
At this stage to pronounce me dead.’
