In a sweet video that has taken the internet by storm, a brave and adorable tank puppy is seen protecting a rhino mother from potential harm. The video showcases the unfortunate reality that wild rhinos face, as their horns need to be pre-emptively trimmed or cut to deter poachers.

The comments on the video express a mix of emotions, with many viewers expressing their sadness over the need for such measures to protect these majestic creatures. One user comments, "It's so sad that wild rhinos need to have their horns pre-emptively trimmed/cut to try to keep s***head poachers from killing them." This sentiment is shared by many who are appalled by the actions of poachers.

The video captures a sweet moment between the tank puppy and the rhino mother. One viewer points out, "Did the baby see his mom fall asleep after getting tranquilized and think 'oh, I guess we're napping now' and lay down? Because that is the cutest thing ever, and I wish I could teach my 2-year-old to do that." The innocence and protective nature of the puppy are truly touching.

As the rhino mother rests after being tranquilized, the tank puppy stands guard, ready to defend her. Viewers are quick to praise the puppy's bravery, with comments like "Good boy" and "Little tank is tanking properly. Looks for mobs, takes aggro, protects the healer." This comparison to gaming terminology adds a playful touch to the comments section.

The video showcases the special bond between animals, as one user shares their own experience, saying, "We had a pig that did things like this for the steer she had made friends with. Mind you, we didn't have a catching chite then and we didn't sedate the steer first, so I was often forced to give it shots on the move." This story highlights the instinctual nature of animals to protect one another.

Amidst the sweet moments, viewers express their frustration towards poachers and the government's involvement. One comment reads, "F*** poachers" while another states, "It's just a shame that the government is getting profits from poaching." These comments reflect the anger and disappointment felt by many towards those responsible for endangering these magnificent creatures.

The video ends on a positive note, with the tank puppy successfully warding off potential threats. Viewers can't help but be charmed by the puppy's determination and the rhino mother's apparent trust in her protector. It's a reminder of the resilience and beauty found in the animal kingdom.

This sweet video not only showcases the protective nature of animals but also sheds light on the unfortunate reality of poaching. The bravery of the tank puppy serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving and protecting our wildlife. Let us hope that this video inspires more people to take action against poaching and work towards a safer future for all animals.

F*** poachers

Did I read somewhere that tranquilizers or current forms are potentially more deadly to rhinos and is big reason why we can't help them if they are hurt as much?
