This Adorable Baby Rhino Cuddles with a Human After Watching Poachers Kill His Mother – Video

It began as a tragedy, and even now nothing can make up for the fact that baby Gretjie was forced to watch helplessly as poachers slaughtered his mother. When rescuers found him at the Kapama Private Game Reserve in South Africa, he was crying inconsolably next to her dead body. But thankfully, Gretjie seems to fit in well at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center, as you can see by the way he snuggles with his caretaker in this video.

Rhinocerous poaching is a serious problem in South Africa because buyers in Asia are willing to pay big money for rhino horns, which are thought (wrongly) to possess medicinal properties. Sadly, more than 1,000 rhinos were killed last year.

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
