A rhinoceros sedated, blindfolded, and hung upside down for a helicopter ride

Nov 10, 2011 By Abraham 10

Nearly 350 rhinos have been poached in South Africa in 2011 so far, a number that has already surpassed the total poached in 2010. The World Wildlife Fund and the South African government are joining forces to protect some of the remaining rhino population one helicopter ride at a time.

    How do they let them down if they’re upside down without crushing them? I’m sure they have a way, I just can’t think of it.
