Athena Posted June 6, 2011 Share Posted June 6, 2011 On a preserve, rhinos were being killed. It was unclear what was killing. A possibility was a rhino had gone mad, and was killing other rhinos, or lions were killing the rhinos. After some time of studying the endangered rhinos, the researchers witnessed elephants killing the rhinos. This is unusual behavior for the elephants. Normally rhinos and elephants get along. The adolescent elephants were also demonstrating unusual sexual behavior. These elephants had been orphaned and moved to the reserve. When their delinquent behavior was noticed, the authorities brought in older, naturally socialized elephants. In time, the adolescent elephants became correctly socialized and the killings stopped.
