Young Girl Injured After Falling Into Rhino Enclosure at Florida Zoo
A young girl was injured after falling into a Rhino enclosure at a Florida zoo Tuesday.
According to the Brevard Zoo, a young girl was participating in a hands-on educational experience with white rhinos.
During the program, witnesses reported that the girl fell between two of the poles that separate guests from the rhinos.
At least one of the rhinos’ snouts touched her, leaving her with undisclosed injuries.
She was taken to a hospital, where her condition is unknown.
In a statement, the Zoo says the program has been going on since 2009 without incident.
They also wrote that they will suspend the program until a review is completed.
