Black Rhino Stuck in Mud is Rescued Using Heavy Equipment

What do you do when a black rhino gets stuck in a dried-up watering hole?

Apparently, you break out the heavy equipment!

This thirsty black rhino apparently went into this dried mudhole looking for something to drink. Instead it got stuck.

This footage was taken in the South African Province of KwaZulu-Natal. It may have taken a couple hours, but it’s good to see this rhino’s life was saved. Especially since the black rhino is currently listed as critically endangered. Apparently a rain shortage is what caused this watering hole to dry up.

Africa’s wild places sure seem to be cruel and unforgiving. It’s fortunate for this rhino that rangers with the proper equipment were nearby to help!
