Sam Intros Rhino Flights

Hey, it's a very frustrated Sam here.  I've been trying for ten minutes (yes, I can tell time - when I want to) to post a photo. This isn't the photo I wanted to post but, hey, I do what I can.

Anyway, we recently shared a video with some of our offline friends, so I thought our online friends might enjoy it too.  It's not something you see or hear of every day.  At least not in this house we don't.

Imagine transporting rhinos from one area to another to save them from extinction. How would humans go about moving them? (They're HUGE! Jan says they're even bigger than I am.)

Well, you put them on a military helicopter and fly them from the field to load them into huge containers and truck them to their new home. You have to see it to believe it. So enjoy the video.

If the video doesn't play, click here.


  1. OMD, that is soo cool; thanks fur sharing!

  2. Me could not believes how they did that! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Awww it's so sad that people have to resort to such an operation but at least the rhinos are being saved here. It's so sad to read that the black rhino is now officially extinct in the wild in west Africa - so drastic measures such as these in the clip is about the last resort for the remaining rhinos! Thanks for sharing!

    Lovely Sam!! that's a great pic of you! Yay! Take care

  4. You don't see the rhinos around here in Indiana, thank goodness. But great that they are being protected so we can enjoy this wonder animal. Oh what power they must have! I am sorry that they are in danger and purr that bad people will leave them alone!

  5. oh! For some reason we can't watch the video where we are but it sounds like a very interesting one!

  6. Flying Rhinos, who woulda thunk it!!!

  7. Wow, that is wild! We are glad that all possible measures are being taken to make sure these amazing animals are protected.

  8. Wow..what an operation! Thanks for sharing it with us,

  10. I thinks theese Rhinos are just a bit bigger than you Sam, but if you work on building your biceps a bit more...Unbelievable video, thanks for posting that.
