Worker Injured by Rhino at Florida Zoo

A Florida zoo worker was hospitalized following an incident involving a rhino Tuesday.

The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens confirms there was contact between a zookeeper and Archie, the Zoo’s male Southern white rhino.

The worker was taken to a nearby hospital for medical evaluation. Their condition was unknown.

The incident comes just a couple months after a 2-year-old girl was injured by a rhino at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne.
