These men aren't hurting this rhino. According to the source: "For some endangered rhinos, a 1,000-mile journey to rescue from them poachers starts with a helicopter ride — hanging upside down, blindfolded and sedated. That might sound uncomfortable, but experts say it's easier ... than by other means. This new procedure is gentler on the darted rhino because it shortens the time it has to be kept asleep with drugs."

Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) male flying through pine forest, Cairngorms NP, Highlands, Scotland. Photographer Peter Cairns: These are normally very shy birds but this male was so sexually charged he was protecting his territory against anything from foxes to cars to photographers. These are big birds and when one flies at you at full speed, it's time to retreat! Did you know? The capercaillie is the world's largest grouse and is Britain's fastest declining bird.
