Rhino Gets Out of Exhibit at Buffalo Zoo
Everyone is okay and nobody was hurt. One of the rhinos at the Buffalo Zoo on Wednesday morning got out of its primary enclosure at the Buffalo Zoo and guests were told to go inside buildings at the time.
Zoo officials said that a 3,000-pound greater one-horned rhino named Mohan was seen out of its "primary enclosure" at about 11:55 a.m. It was in an area that was "an adjacent animal paddock that he is normally not allowed to be in", according to the Buffalo News.
It seems as even though there were tranquillizer guns, and the zoo was sealed off, that officials and Buffalo Zoo workers were extremely professional and handled the situation quick. According to reports, the whole incident took place in less than 10 minutes and there was no urgent sense of panic among zoo visitors.
