A little rhino was just a day old and her life was already in danger.
In addition to the major threats all rhinos face, like rampant poaching for their horns, there are also the dangers of nature that the animals have to contend with. And this baby rhino, as sometimes happens, was rejected by her mom soon after birth.
"We don’t know why the mother rejected the calf, but this does happen from time to time," Mark Mills, who was working at Care for Wild Africa's rhino sanctuary in South Africa when this infant needed help, told The Dodo. Rescuers rushed to save her and give her milk so she wouldn't starve.
