SOME IMAGES ARE TOO GOOD NOT TO SHARE











As my convalesence continues this came from Some Girl…

"Black rhinos are bulky, earthbound animals—but lately, the lumbering pachyderms have taken part in some pretty impressive aerial acrobatics. Nineteen of the endangered rhinos have taken thousand-mile trips across South Africa while dangling upside down from helicopters." (Click here for the whole story and video)

The rhinos were airlifted to a crate, and then trucked 1400 km, right? There's no way a human would survive the trip suspended by the ankles, never mind a two ton rhino. The news coverage seems a bit confused about this, but the scenes of the rhinos being let out of crates from trucks seem to bear it out.
