Then they shot Impi through the abdomen, shattering his hip joint, but they didn't take his horns.
"We think they shot Impi because he tried to protect Vrystaat," Dr. Glyphis said.
Impy died from severe peritonitis, an inflammation of the tissue that lines the abdomen and abdominal organs, according to Dr. Glyphis. But Vrystaat had somehow - miraculously - survived.
When the farm's owner returned the next morning and found the rhinos, he immediately contacted Saving the Survivors, asking for their help. A team that included Dr. Glyphis arrived as quickly as it could.
