Amorous Rhino

No, it's not the name of a rock band (though it should be!).

The news report says it all:

"Sharka, a two-ton white rhino, got amorous with Dave Alsop's car when he stopped with three friends to take pictures of the animal mating with his partner Trixie at the West Midland Safari Park.

The 12-year-old rhino tried to mount the Renault Laguna from the side, denting the doors and ripping off the wing mirrors before Dave drove away with a puffing Sharka in pursuit."

The amazing thing, of course, is that rhinos are so unselective as to mate with a Renault. I had hoped for better!
