Florida zookeeper injured by rhinoceros while training
A zookeeper in Jacksonville, Florida, was taken to a local hospital after being injured by a rhinoceros Tuesday morning.
The extent of the keeper’s injuries was not immediately revealed.
The person “made contact” with the male rhino, Archie, during a routine training session, said Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens spokeswoman J.J Vitale.
No guests were present at the time.
Born in 1969, Archie is one of the oldest rhinos in the country, Vitale said. He has been at the zoo since 1975.
