Warning! Rhino

Next time you’re relaxing, walking around with friends or hanging out on a wood bench in a park, be on the lookout for Rhinos. Recently they’ve been spotted lurking around in crowded cities, small towns and communities.

If a Rhino happens to find you by surprise you really ought to know a couple of important things.

First, Stand your ground and shout! 
If no tree or scrub is available to allow your escape, stand and face the animal (rhinos have poor eyesight but are attracted to movement). As the rhino approaches, scream and shout as loud as you can. A charging rhino may beer away from a noisy target.

Second, Run in the opposite direction.
A rhino will continue running in the same direction when it is charging and is not likely to turn around and come back for another attack. Once you have evaded the charge and the rhino has veered off, run in the opposite direction.
