I need to remove specific characters at the end of a string.  But if the string of characters are not there at the end, whatever is there should be left alone.

$str = "<p>this is a test</p><p>and this is another</p>";

and I need to remove the last </p> (but leave the others intact).

I tried:

$trimmed = rtrim(get_the_content(),"</p>");

but it stripped out all the "</p>"'s not just the last.

Suggestions?
