HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — A game park director says a rhino crushed a tour guide to death at a private nature reserve in Zimbabwe.
Kate Travers, director of the Imire Game Park, said on Wednesday that Tafadzwa Gosho died on Monday night after he was crushed by a rhino he was tending to.
Travers said Gosho was “an experienced rhino handler” and that such attacks were rare. The Imire Game Park is 40 kilometers (24.86 miles) from the capital, Harare.
On its website, the Imire Game Park is described as “an intensive black rhino breeding station,” which has successfully released 11 rhinos into the wild.
