Last Friday, The Care For Wild Life Africa Rhino Sanctuary was contacted about the rescue of an 8 month old calf rhino, who’s mother had been recently poached. The 8 month old was spotted in the reserve of the Mpumalanga region and had been shot in the left leg.
 
A rescue team was deployed shortly afterwards, but were unsuccessful in locating the calf due to the heavy rain that washed away its footsteps.
 
With 8 days passed by, hope started to fade that the calf may not survive. With no milk and a gun shot wound, chances were slim. However, the helicopter incredibly was able to spot the calf.

The orphaned rhino was transported immediately to the sanctuary to undergo treatment for its leg.
