Patient Updates

Rhinoceros was released after 107 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Rhino is a new admit, but he's already got a reputation for being "mean", and quite aggressive when being handled. Well, we hope he'll settle down a bit in the days to come...
