    Indian Rhinos always seem much calmer than the African species, but I don't know if a wild one would be as calm as this one?

    the town is Hetuada just outside Chitwan. I think this video is from 2015 when a rhino wandered in from the park. Most videos show the more volatile follow-up where the rhino was harrassed into aggressiveness by people in vehicles, and ended up charging through a hospital, killing one woman and injuring several others. Only a few videos show the intial period like this one where the rhino is just ambling along window-shopping. The rhino was herded back to the park safely.
