Chester Zoo has uploaded video of the tender first moments of an Eastern black rhino giving birth to her baby calf.

Fara was born Jan 31 at 08:15.

Every birth is cause for great celebration but given that Eastern black rhino face a real threat of extinction our new arrival is even more significant. The calf is super important to the breeding programme in Europe and her arrival is another step towards sustaining a black rhino population which, in the wild, is being ravaged by poachers on an almost daily basis,” said Tim Rowlands the Curator of mammals at Chester Zoo.

In the wild there are thought to be less than 650 Eastern black rhinos remaining, pushing the species perilously close to extinction.

We put great effort into protecting black rhinos in the wild, supporting a number of sanctuaries across Africa. However, as the demand for rhino horn intensifies, poaching continues to become a bigger and bigger problem.

“We hope that, one day, we can put an end to this crisis once and for all,” Rowlands added.

As someone who loves animals but also loves humans, I am glad that efforts have been made to save this species.

But, I also wish society could work as hard to protect unborn babies targeted by “abortion poachers” who want to slaughter them in the womb.

A story about a dog which heard a newborn’s cry and brought the child alongside her own puppies was shared online in years ago.

It is so heartwarming, that I wanted to reintroduce it.

Dog saves newborn

Police in Argentina think the dog, named China, may have heard the cries of a newborn baby abounded by the child’s teen mother.

China was nursing her own puppies at the time and her motherly instincts kicked in.

Authorities say that had China not carried or dragged the child over to her pups when she did the little boy may have died.

Chief of Police Daniel Salcedo said the baby was found nestled down, keeping warm with the pups with only a few bruises after a neighbor heard the baby’s cries and called for help.

Family dog kept watch over missing 2-year-old overnight

ELGIN, SC (WIS) – A missing 2-year-old boy in Elgin was found Saturday morning after Kershaw County deputies say the family dog kept him warm and safe all night.

Sheriff Jim Matthews said 22-month-old Tyler Jacobson was reunited with his family after he was found across the street behind a neighbor’s home when someone reported hearing crying in the area.

Tyler was reported missing around 8:00pm Friday from a residence on Ashley Creek Drive. Matthews said the boy’s mother, 25-year-old Jacklyn Marie Jacobson, and her boyfriend Jose Gloria told investigators Tyler went to get some juice and didn’t come back.

Kershaw County deputies used a bloodhound tracking team and a SLED helicopter with infrared capabilities, but called the search off around 12:30am Saturday. The search resumed around 7:45am, and the boy was found shortly thereafter. “Just thinking that a dog would watch a baby over the night, it’s kind of like a movie instead of real life,” said Emily DuBose, who lives in the house outside which the baby was found.

DuBose had no idea a story of devotion and survival was playing out right outside her door. “When we saw the choppers last night, we just assumed a criminal was loose, so I locked the door,” said Linda Harr, who also lives at the house. “The last thing I was gonna do is go outside.”

“I heard some barking early in the morning, but I didn’t really think about it, I just heard dogs barking,” said DuBose.

But during the night, Jacobson’s dog was keeping watch over his 22-month-old master in temperatures that got down to the 40s. “I just wish I’d have known, I could have warmed him up, called the cops,” said Harr.

Now, words of praise for the dog who likely helped save little Tyler’s life. “Since he belonged to them, he must have followed them the whole way, so that’s very special,” said Harr.

And so this story has a happy ending, thanks to the special bond of a child’s best friend.

Sheriff Matthews said the family was interviewed Friday night, and again on Saturday. He said the boy’s biological father is in the Army and stationed in Hawaii, and is currently on his way back to Kershaw County.
