Orphaned rhino has successful cataract surgery
 
 
 


JOHANNESBURG  - An orphaned South African rhinoceros blinded by poachers who hit it on the head in the same attack that killed its mother has regained its vision after cataract surgery, its owners said Monday.
Roccy the rhino underwent the surgery on January 3 in the University of Pretoria’s veterinary hospital and has now returned to his native Elandela game reserve in the country’s northeast. “His character has changed. He’s now less dependent on humans,” owner Rocco Gioia told AFP.
