A little 3-week old zebra calf named Shaq was found in South Africa. Some people realized something was wrong with him, so they called the Rhino Orphanage, where he was welcomed with open arms. He had a badly broken leg, so rescuers wrapped it up in a cast and gave him lots of bottle feedings. Eventually, he needed surgery for the leg, and Shaq snuggled with his carers all the way to the vet’s office, where he had the bones of his legs realigned. Now, he’s been doing well and making friends with the other animals at the sanctuary!
- The Rhino Orphanage, an animal shelter, took in a baby zebra called Shaq with a broken limb and poor odds of survival.
- Shaq’s caring handlers took him to a vet, where he received surgery to fix the broken leg.
- Shaq is healing well post-surgery and is now able to move about, even though he has a small cast on the leg.
