October 4, 2006: Rhinos attack newborn calf



Peaceful mom and newborn calf at Holland's Beekse Bergen safari park. The youngster is fresh out, not a day old yet.





The ugly beasts catch scent and take up a chase of the weak-legged youth, apparently for nothing but sport.





And apparently the sport is golf as the calf is chipped up into the air.



Finally a keeper arrives, but no word on whether the youngster survived.

Often when there's an ugly-ass rhino baby or other sort of rhino pic, someone will note that rhinos are in fact utterly mean and nasty brutish animals...



LabRat  Wednesday Oct 4 11:24 AM

Maybe they were worried mom was going to breastfeed in front of them at the watering hole.

Baby vs. Rhino




Spexxvet  Wednesday Oct 4 11:36 AM

Now, if the calf had been armed ....



Sundae  Wednesday Oct 4 11:44 AM

Or if the mother had been able to get the morning after pill...



wolf  Wednesday Oct 4 11:46 AM

The calf wasn't on fire, was it?



Trilby  Wednesday Oct 4 11:49 AM

In the pic where that poor baby is in the air--look at the rhino's face: Pure evil glee.

Hateful thing.

you watch too many cartoons


headsplice  Wednesday Oct 4 12:11 PM

Don't assign human motivations to animals. If you paint a baby monkey pink, the other baby monkeys will attack and kill it, because it looks different. That's a survival tactic, and nothing else.

So you're saying don't assign human motivations to animals and don't paint baby monkeys pink.

Sheesh, way to ruin my fun!


Happy Monkey  Wednesday Oct 4 12:29 PM

Eh, I think animals do things for fun all the time.

And if a kid looks different in school, there's a pretty good chance they'll get attacked as well. Hopefully verbally and not fatally, though.



Flint  Wednesday Oct 4 12:40 PM

Let's "read" the "facial expression" of all these rhinos (I'll bet it's much harder with no narrative context...)

I have home videos of a baby seal chasing seagulls just for fun. Flopping around on his little flippers in the sand trying to get them.

Days of Our Rhino

Steve the Rhino: "Hey Herb, did you hear Wanda the Cow had a kid?"
Herb the Rhino: "She did? That bitch! I bet it was with that Ralph! That guy is so full of bullshit."
Steve the Rhino: "Well, he IS a bull."
Herb the Rhino: "I don't care! That two-timing slut."
Steve the Rhino: "Yeah, well, I bet you're too chicken to do something about it."
Herb the Rhino: "Yeah? What the hell do YOU know about it?"
Steve the Rhino: "I bet you can't clear the fence with the kid."
Herb the Rhino: "Oh yeah, short-horn? Watch this shit."
Herb runs, horns the kid, kid clears fence EASY . . .
Herb the Rhino: "YEAH BITCH! TAKE THAT! HERB FOR THE THREE POINTER!"

That 3rd one on the right, 2nd row...he has an air of whimsy about him.

First row, second from left--has come to accept his sexual inadequacy.



Shawnee123  Wednesday Oct 4 01:39 PM

3rd row, 4th one over...definitely a case of short-guy syndrome

Someone photoshop Steve-O into that picture.

Unlike human beings, who are usually kind and supportive to people who look different.


Flint  Wednesday Oct 4 03:59 PM

Let's be honest, who hasn't beaten someone to death, before realizing that they were simply painted pink.

Well, I shot someone painted pink before. Man, did I feel badly afterward. I was SURE they were really pink!


Leah  Wednesday Oct 4 08:02 PM

Poor baby calf I hope it was ok. What a horrible start to life.
Don't know if anyone has noticed yet but the fence in the last photo looks a little bit flimsy to me. One little nudge and over she goes. Rhinos on the run, not such a good idea, and I'm sure there would be other animals and people all over the place running from those crazy ass rhinos



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Oct 4 11:27 PM

wtf......26 posts and nobody's told me whether we're eating the calf or the Rhino, yet.

Being so young, the calf is pretty pliable, which could save it.
Also, calves that young tend to walk around with their heads down which might have been interpreted as stalking?

Oh, sure. Blame the victim.


wolf  Thursday Oct 5 12:29 PM

It's a wildlife park. Shouldn't we see more of this kind of evolution in action sort of display? Why aren't there lions in the zebra enclosure, if they are really trying to provide a simulation of the African Veldt?

AND: entertainment value! It's a win/win! (Seriously...isn't it?)


Undertoad  Thursday Oct 5 12:37 PM

It turns out that the IotD where the bear ate the monkey is from this same park.

I didn't know, until I retrieved my mail yesterday... and it turns out a lurker suggested this image just before I found it. Synchronicity... but thanks anyway, Marcel!

He said that the calf survived.

I'll have to remember not to go to that park for a vacation! SHEESH!

Ankoli cattle (sp?) - the sound strange - they say MOO - like you or I would just say "Moo" (or at least the one's I saw did)

And who hasn't flipped a calf into the air with their horn?


LabRat  Thursday Oct 5 02:34 PM

I once flipped a kitten in the air, and across a room. Accidently of course.

I was walking out of a room, talking to my friend, not paying attention to my feet. Her new kitten crossed in front of me with perfect timing such that my right foot went right under it's belly and as it came forward, lifted the kitten into the air and sent it sailing across the room. I am embarassed to say I had to stifle laughter as I went to check that it was OK. It was. But man, you couldn't have timed it any better...



headsplice  Thursday Oct 5 03:20 PM

There's a vid on YuoTube that ends with a cat trying to catch a string that's attached to one of the blades of a ceiling fan. You can guess what happens.

This steer could probably take on them rhinos...



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Oct 7 03:38 PM

I don't know, neatorama? Even that Mad Max bovine would have a tough time with an Abrams M-1 Rhino. They be bad, even elephants are wary of them.

Something like this really happened here in Texas. Migratory birds are routinely tagged or banded with a leg band to track migration. Sometimes larger birds like geese get a neck band collar with large numbers on it that can be read from a distance. Some guy at the fish and game got the idea to paint some snow geese pink to mark them from the others for tracking purposes. They didn't last long and were either killed by other geese or ostracized.
