Hot Right Now: One scoop, two scoop, three scoop, Find Her (38 Photos)

The story behind this amazing photo (12 Photos)

The seventh black rhino population established by the WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project, was recently released after a 1500 kilometer (932 miles) trip across the country. Nineteen of the critically endangered animals were moved from the Eastern Cape to a new location in Limpopo province. The helicopter ride was just a portion of the trip, but it made for some amazing photos.

    Rhino wakes up.. Wha? Where the fuck am I? Damn, what a party…

  • Justin R

    Damn poachers ruining life as we know it

  • Vicarious_Ink

    Pretty amazing creatures, honestly. I hope they just don't go extinct due to over poaching for their horns. While they would make great beer steins, I could do well with glass.

    God speed, Rhino. God speed.

      Glass sounds good, id rather have a glass mug for my beer than anything else, gives it a great taste, can't explain that.

      "over poaching"? A little poaching is okay but no overpoaching!! 🙂

  • DrLeppiwinks

    Pretty sure there was a WWF wrestler named Black Rhino at one point….

    • The Dream Is Dead

      No, but there is one named Rhyno who was in the WWF/WWE/TNA

      • rable

        but was he black???

  • MOAR

    Enter pissed-off PETA rant…where is it? We know it's coming.

    • myself

      I am expecting to too.

    • hMMMM

      "Oh, those poor joints! That rhino will be so sore tomorrow, this is a case of animal cruelty!!!! We should have just let it die and let nature take its course aweoweoewoeweowoee blahblabhlbahblahahso;!!!"

    "Should I write a check, sir?"

    "I'd really rather not"

      You are correct. They announced it last week, the Western Black Rhino is forever gone.

      • Guesty

        Finally!! Thank God, seriously. Now if Panda Bears would just take a fucking page and start copying ..

      • Huzzah

        Yep, a few subspecies of black rhino can still be found, but I think they number around 2000 total.

  • echogeo

    Paula's done this ride.

  • CDW

    Yup, while the pics are awesome, looks like it was an ill fated trip.

  • Juan
    • Silaw

      Thats the western black rhino, those are eastern (slight genetic difference) which means this project is even more important.

      • A BiPolar Guy

        the article says the last time a western one was seen was 2006, so this is the "legally dead" announcement rather than anything really new.. Still a chance for the other subspecies

  • Nathan Hart

    Black Rhinos are now indeed either extinct in the wild, or at the point of no return. Best effort, but too little too late.

    • Andy Austin

      it's not all black rhinos though, just a sub-species native to West Africa. There are still some other sub-species in other parts of Africa. I saw a few last summer in Namibia, quite an amazing creature.

  • MigraineBoy

    Long story short…Paula missed the schoolbus…

    #7 New extreme sport? Rhino bungee jumping.

    • Rhino

      Ain't gonna happen.

      • guesty

        picture says otherwise 😉

  • Joe

    This both amazes me (the rescue) and saddens me (the poaching problem) as a member of the human race.

  • Hebrewhammer

    932 miles in less than 10 minutes. Seems legit.

    • Groggy

      The 10 minute helicopter ride was a short leg of the whole trip. Reading comprehension is an awesome thing.

    • Bullshit Allergic

      soooo bosses are usually sedated against their sills naked, have their feet bound, are blindfolded and towed by a helicopter in the most embarrassing manner possible? just admit you have nothing worth typing.

    #12 i was working with kid this weekend and one of the little girls said to me that "Unicorn are real, and (pointed to the a rhino) said "look there a fat grey one"

    • Wet_tosti

      With rhino You ment the fat bitch in the mall stuffing her face with a snowcone walking around in a grey jogging suit.

      • hMMMM


        I think he meant the fatass in his bedroom at 3 in the afternoon stuffing his face with mommy's "homemade" canned meatloaf that was prepared for dinner 2 nights ago. While chiving.

      There was a band called 17 Rhinos (Saw them in Madison, WI) years ago… guess they would need to do a little 'shoppin of the photo.
