“Upon arriving at the dam, there were several rhinos interacting with each other. A male was chasing some females and then being chased away, so it took me awhile to notice the tiny zebra foal stuck in the mud,” Roel van Muiden said.

According to him, “The herd was nowhere in sight, so the foal must have been there for quite some time. A rhino bull made his way down to the water and near to the muddy patch the foal was stuck in. The rhino started to prod the zebra with his horn out of curiosity. After a while he grew impatient and lifted the body out.

“The foal, still being alive but very weak, could only lift its head out of the mud. The rhino lifted the foal so quickly that it had no time to react. The rhino then dropped the foal and moved off.”

Lastly, the guide added that the rhino then came back to take another look and prod a bit more. However, the zebra was lifted in a different position this time, and the foal was disemboweled by its horn. “I have been guiding for almost 10 years and may go on for many and still never witness something as amazing and melancholy as this,” Roel van Muiden said.
