A tiger trainer at the Australia Zoo had to be flown to the hospital after an awful attack!

David Styles, 30, suffered two puncture wounds to his neck when a tiger attacked him in front of about 50 zoo visitors!

A witness to the awful attack said:

"It was horrifying. They fell in the water and the tiger was trying to hold him under. The other trainers, maybe four of them, tried to fight the tiger off. One of them was hitting it with a stick. It was an accident. It was not an act of aggression. It was part of a routine and just an unfortunate mistake."

That's terrible! No one knows what caused the attack but it's thought to be the worst in the zoo's history!!

Check out a video to see the moment the tiger attacks the trainer AFTER THE JUMP!!

New Baby White Rhino Born At Australia Zoo

Filed under: Baby BlabberCuteness!ZooRhinos

Baby Rhino!

OMG!! There is nothing cuter than small versions of big things.

Australia Zoo just announced the birth of their second Southern White Rhinoceros calf, a cute lil baybay gurrrl.

We say lil just cause she's tiny for a rhino. She actually weighs about 100 pounds!!

Because of poaching for their horns, White Rhinos are listed as Near Threatened.

So every time a new Rhino is born into the world, it's an event to celebrate!

The lil baby and her mama are spending time bonding off display.

A zookeeper said:

"We're really happy with her progress. She is feeding and is quite active – she was walking within hours of the birth."

That's great! We're so glad she's healthy!

Congrats, mama Rhino!
