Hunter and Hunted: Rhino Showdown

Hunter and Hunted: Rhino Showdown
"The animal was definitely berserk and it was definitely going to kill somebody." A chilling recollection from a tourist who, along with his brother, was attacked by a rhino in the brushland of South Africa. Seemingly unprovoked, the rhino charged, hitting the men with the force of a pickup truck. Now, scientists look back at similar attacks to figure out the mistakes tourists are making with these normally shy animals.
