Abuja - Officials at the Denver Zoo in Colorado, USA said a woman was admitted to hospital after a rhinoceros bit her hand at the zoo.
The zoo said a black rhino named Mshindi bit the woman during a “rhino experience” program designed to let visitors get close to and feed the majestic animal.
"This is a terrible accident. We feel horrible for the woman involved," Brian Aucone, the zoo's vice president for animal care, said.
"Mshindi is a gentle animal. We believe this was an accident and that he was not trying to hurt anyone."
The zoo did not release details regarding the extent of the woman’s injury.
