The scene happened in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania show a number of safari vehicles driving at lions targeting a small rhino, nearly running one of the lions over.

It is against the law in Tanzania to harass or molest wildlife – as per the Wildlife Conservation Act.

The tour operator said that “laws are there to be broken. Deal with it. We saved a rhino.”

The baby rhino had gotten separated from his mother

The Safari worker who published the video said on facebook that the mother and baby rhino are now reunited but the baby Rhino is under watch due to few wounds she suffered from the hungry Lions.

Do you think they should have let nature take it’s course or that they were right to intervene to save the rhino ?
