Lechwe calf to enjoy family Christmas

Rhino team leader Chas Mackenzie will have an extra guest at the dinner table this Christmas - Red Lechwe calf Astrid.

Two week old Astrid, named after a character in the film How to Train Your Dragon, is being hand-reared by Chas.

Chas, who bottle feeds Astrid with cow's milk four times a day, will take the pretty youngster home for Christmas to ensure she still gets her daily quota.

Astrid, who has gone from strength to strength, will be reunited with the rest of Red Lechwe group, in the near future.
