AN ABANDONED baby rhino is now thriving after being rescued at a wildlife conservancy. Five-month-old Ringo - now named after Beatles drummer Ringo Starr - was rejected by his mother and found collapsed when nearly two-weeks-old, by staff at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. The southern white rhino was born in October to first-time mum, Curra, but after she failed to feed him, staff at the conservancy came to the rescue. Ringo, who was severely dehydrated, also had a medical condition and was underweight, but he was nursed back to health by a specialist team. Now boisterous Ringo enjoys nothing more than a gum boot massage, a stroll through the park and tucking into oats and milk.
