WHEN RESCUED GET AGAIN RESCUED: WATCH FIGHT TO SAVE RESCUED BABY RHINO LIFE AS DEHORNING GOES WRONG !

A group of passionate SANParks care-givers had to spring into action as a rescued baby rhino reacted badly to sedatives given to her during a dehorning procedure.

The dehorning exercise, performed at Care for Wild Africa, on a beloved white rhino orphan named Meha didn't exactly go as planned.

During the experience, which took place towards the end of July, Meha had an adverse reaction to the sedative that was used.

According to Care for Wild Africa, Meha arrived at the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary in May 2015 after she was found standing beside her mom’s carcass. Meha stood by her mom’s side for over 2 days before she was rescued and brought into the sanctuary. She had not had any milk for approximately 72 hours and was extremely dehydrated and stressed. Meha’s mom was killed by poachers.

On Tuesday the 12th of July 2016, a decision was made by SANParks, MTPA, and Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary NPC management to dehorn all rhinos at the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary due to the on-going national poaching crisis, and a number of serious poaching threats that were received at the non-profit organisation.

Rhino horns is purely keratin and the dehorning process is as painless as clipping your nails. Similarly the use of the horn for medicial purposes is the same as eating your toe nails.

During this specific dehorning exercise, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary says its beloved white rhino orphan Meha experienced an adverse reaction to the sedative that was used for the procedure.

"Thanks to continuous monitoring by the SANParks team, it was immediately identified that Meha’s breathing and pulse had come to a complete stop.

"This prompted Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary’s co-founder, Chris de Bruno Austin, to initiate CPR on the 410kg (900lbs) white rhino by blowing into Meha’s nose as several other team members engaged in chest compressions. Chris and the team refused to give up, and after several painstaking minutes, Meha was successfully resuscitated and began to breathe on her own.

Meha has since made a full recovery, and is currently grazing in the fields with her fellow rhino orphans.

Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary says it will continue to exact these sorts of measures to ensure the safety and well-being of the animals being cared for at the rhino sanctuary. What to help, check out www.youcaring.com/rhino

The California legislature today sent historic legislation to Governor Jerry Brown that would prohibit the breeding and theatrical performance of captive orcas in California, as well as their export, consistent with federal law, out of North America.

The "Greasy Pig" contest, an annual crowd favourite at a small eastern Ontario fair, has been cancelled after animals rights activists and the province caught wind of it.

“We must not go quietly into this impoverished future"

As leading conservation scientists call for a mass anti-extinction movement, we encourage you to read this thought-provoking article that reminds us that time is running out for so much flora and fauna.

Importantly, we hope that the stories we share on our Facebook page inspire you to take action - to share, comment, donate or campaign. Extinction isn't an abstract threat - every orphan we rescue and every injured elephant we treat is symptomatic of a wider crisis.

Leading conservation scientists are calling for bold political action to combat the loss of our planet’s largest animals. Can they inspire…

Grizzly Protections Could be Handed Over to States

The Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team estimates there are about 700 bears in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's proposal to delist the grizzly from the endangered species list could disconnect the species' habitat and open the bears up to game hunting, according to comments on the plan from states including Montana.

Conservationists in Montana are worried there still aren't enough bears for the population to make a full recovery. The Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team estimates there are about 700 grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.... http://www.publicnewsservice.org/2016-08-26/endangered-species-and-wildlife/grizzly-protections-could-be-handed-over-to-states/a53734-1

Don't forget them. Just awful. Shame on #Westport #Massachusetts Sign & Share: http://ow.ly/IP84303CFgW #ROC
As the investigation into the "farm of horrors" continues it is coming out that many of the animals found in dozens of burial sites were starved to death. How can anyone go home and sleep in a comfortable house after having a nice dinner knowing that their animals are out in the elements and starving to death? If there is evil in the world this is it!
