Have you ever seen a Rhino fly? Well, watch this video - an endangered Black Rhino is airlifted to establish a population in a new area.

The Rhino lift is part of the WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project, and according to the organisation:

A relatively new capture technique was used to airlift some of the rhinos out of difficult or inaccessible areas by helicopter. This entails suspending the sleeping rhino by the ankles for a short trip through the air to awaiting vehicles.

There's also a great gallery of photos from the same event here, and as a bonus feature, I've altered this photo so it looks like an awesome Rhino balloon.
