I was leaving to come when I saw the baby rhino trying to cross a busy highway. I drove my truck onto the highway to block the other cars from hitting it. We ended up walking. We walked for a while. He ended up following me everywhere. Knowing my time was short and I had to leave I considered who would take care of and protect the baby rhino . He was curious of other animals and would always spot them from afar. I asked myself who could use a rhino? Maybe they could take it hunting. In my thoughts of convincing someone, A rhino for hunting they would ask. “Yeah, but what a great companion” I would reply. I had to leave, so on the shoulder of the road I gave the baby rhino a hug, I cried, and then I woke up missing the baby rhino….
