Ceratotherium simum Mkhaya Swazi 040314 WRK 138 low res

Wire snares and Rhinos

This white rhino has one droopy ear, the result of getting its head caught in a wire snare. The wire dug into its neck and severed a tendon that helped keep its ear erect. Fortunately, the snare was eventually removed and the injury treated, but the ear will always droop.
