Once animals are rescued, they sometimes carry a lifelong attachment and affection for the people who saved their lives. Whether it is a dog in a new home or an exotic animal rescued from captivity, animals have a wonderful memory when it comes to those who have shown them love.
Little baby Rhino was rescued in the wild. While full grown Rhinos can weigh over 7,000 pounds, this little Rhino was only a day old, and was till very tiny. The baby Rhino had been through an ordeal and needed to be checked for injuries.
The Rhino was very frightened and would not let the rescuers check her in any way. No matter how hard they tried, the rescuers could not calm the little Rhino down. After they had exhausted all their other options, they decided to try something that was a bit out of the ordinary.
The rescuer went and got a guitar, and brought it into the examination room. He looked at everyone else with a look that said, “Do you have a better idea?”
The frightened little Rhino was still fighting to get away until the man started playing the guitar. From the first strum, the Rhino instantly calmed down. The man kept playing, and the Rhino became more and more relaxed. She finally laid down and let the rescuers examine her. She realized she was safe.
The entire time they were examining her, the man played his guitar. The rescuer with the guitar went with the little Rhino into her new enclosure and played his song for her until she started to fall asleep. He sat down on the floor next to her, and the little Rhino curled by his feet and peacefully fell asleep.
The little Rhino formed a special bond with the musical rescuer and, would not go to sleep without first hearing her lullaby played. The Rhino spends her days growing up in the Care For Wild Rhino Sanctuary.
