The Land Rover rattled on the dirt road while we were looking for any early morning animal movement. The sun had risen just enough for us to take off one of our many layers of clothing, when we came across an unbelievable stench. Our astute tracker quickly said that it must be a large animal that died.
A few minutes later we found the carcass of a rhino about 40 metres off the side of the road. We knew immediately that it was dead and the first thought on everyone’s mind was that this poor rhino was the victim of poaching. The Land Rover left the dirt road, approaching the rhino, to see if we could see its horn. As we grew closer, it seemed like the rhino was twitching! Was it alive?
