Rhino Mum Not Taking Any Chances With Human Near Her Baby

This photo was taken in Kaziranga National Park in the Assam region of India.

A mother rhino charged across a road and chased an elephant trainer up a tree as shocked tourists looked on, reports The Telegraph.

This was all to protect her baby from a human who was getting too close…


The fierce mother shook her head aggressively at the man several times before deciding the message had been made clear, eventually running off with her baby in tow.
