Female Rhino on Loose Causes Panic
UPI ^ | April 21, 2012

Posted on 04/22/2012 12:28:03 AM PDT by nickcarraway

A female rhino named Elizabeth caused panic among residents when it left its animal conservancy home in Namibia and entered communal farms, a resident said.

The Ministry of the Environment and Tourism dispatched a team to try to recapture the rhino, which lives at the Khoadi-Hoas Conservancy in the Kunene Region, New Era reported.

"The rhino was running around in the road, chasing after cars and even people," an area resident said.

Elizabeth was among several rhinos relocated to communal conservancies three years ago.

She was spotted among cattle on a farm in the area, and ministry staff members were at the farm guarding the rhino until it can be returned home.

Rhinos have been targeted by poachers in the region, especially South Africa, where hundreds of rhinos are killed for their horns annually.

In Namibia, local, national and international anti-poaching efforts have been undertaken.

Do not fret, dupes are good. By the way another take on this is That the tea party, Sarah and Michelle have also caused panic but for different reasons.

When I saw the title, I thought I would have a chance to "be clever" and Olympia came to mind. Once I opened the thread, alas - the able-minded FReepers had beat me to the punch in spades.

God knows I love this place!

After Helen Thomas, the next best way to enforce celibacy is to watch pictures of female RINOs.

What are RINOs Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins doing in Namibia? Does Lisa Murkowski know and why isn't she running with the herd?
