Team STS Find Injured Rhino Cow

Dr Johan Marais and Zoe Glyphis were called out to this exceptional white rhino cow. Unfortunately, she was injured by the local bull.

She only has one functional teat. Unfortunately, in the skirmish with the bull, he managed to lacerate the teat quite badly. Anaesthesia was expertly handled by Dr Bester, the attending vet. Meanwhile, the reserve staff kept her cool with a hosepipe. Additionally, Dr Johan sutured the teat on both sides, with the assistance of Dr Zöe.

She has a subadult calf at foot, who is not suckling anymore. She should make an uneventful recovery. Genetics like hers are precious nowadays, every effort should certainly be made to have her successfully raise more calves.
