"The remainder of the rhino as well as Charlie our hippo orphan are doing well," Taylor told The Dodo. "They were initially very scared but have now settled back into a routine. The staff and volunteers have been absolutely amazing in keeping their focus on the care of the animals despite the trauma they have endured themselves. We have also had a vet onsite for the last 48 hours in case we need specialist care for any reason."
The orphanage's priority right now is to care for the remaining animals, Taylor explained, as well as to increase security, for both the animals and the people who care for them.
