It's sad that this is the only solution to keep these animals safe.

"The five rhinos at the sanctuary — Andatu, Ratu, Andalas, Rosa and Bina — get daily checkups to ward off common ailments such as tuberculosis, hepatitis and salmonella."

++++++++++++ Andalas spent some time at our zoo before being sent to meet the girls at Way Kambas. He's a charming personality and it was bittersweet when he left. These are the most vocal rhinos and it's very odd to hear them chirping and whistling to themselves! I wish we could somehow POISON the horns, so poachers would leave them alone.'s too much to hope for.
