Friday Photo - Cyclist Chased by Rhino

And you thought it was bad when you were chased by a dog!

The situation is not nearly as bad as it looks. The rhino is one that was raised by the Sanwild Wildlife Sanctuary since it was a baby. The photo is copyright of the sanctuary, but we found it on the Marla Sink Druzgal website.

This rhino's mother was killed by poachers. Before rangers could rescue him, he was attacked by hyenas. He was taken to the sanctuary, where they were barely able to save his life. Eventually the little rhino recovered, and started following one of the employees when he traveled around the preserve by bicycle to perform various duties. Today he is now part of a rhino herd.
