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

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.
