This vintage footage of a Lake Kariba rhino rescue from the 1960s is worth a few minutes of your time.
When the Zambezi River was dammed in the late 1950s, the Rhodesian Game Rangers launched Operation Noah to rescue thousands of animals including buffalo, elephant, and rhino that were stranded on islands in the lake in northern Rhodesida (now Zimbabwe). This vintage footage a Lake Kariba rhino rescue shows how dangerous that work could be.
Black rhino are known for having a surly disposition and this one certainly did not appreciate being manhandled by those rangers!
Luckily, everyone walked away from the encounter unharmed.
It would have been pretty embarrassing for those rangers if the rhino they were trying to rescue would have sunk their boat!
