On tonight’s episode of The Zoo on RTE One at 7pm.

Catherine O’Connor writes:

“Four-week-old rhino calf Jabari meets his father Chaka for the first time on this week’s episode of ‘The Zoo’. The animal care team are delighted to witness the young calf greet his dad as he ventures on his first clumsy run through the African Savanna. The youngster playfully spars with his giant dad as the animal care team look on with happiness at how well this important first meeting went.”

We gather together to mourn,
An object which used to adorn,
The home of a dancer,
Before some low chancer,
Got his hands on the poor fellow’s horn.
