Rhino follows worker to staff yard at Denver Zoo

DENVER (AP) — A greater one-horned rhino was able to leave part of its enclosure at the Denver Zoo and wander into a yard occupied by staff and volunteers.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1rqgu72 ) that staff members say the rhino, named Bandhu, appeared surprised by the people in the yard when he found his way there on Thursday. Zoo staff says Bandhu was moved to an indoor enclosure and zoo guests were never in any danger.

No one was injured and Bandhu is known for having an exceptionally calm demeanor.

Officials say they are reviewing the incident.
