my daughters ride on a rhino

By Mary Mottram

We were on a day out at the zoo wth family and my daugther was 3 years old, she was sitting on the wall looking at the rhino that was grazing. I only turned my back for a minute, and when I turned back there she was on its back. Someone grabbed her of it and she was upset, as she was happy to have a ride. I grew up in Ellesmere Port. We used to walk to the zoo most weekends. My uncle used to live opposite the main gate. I live in Melton Mowbray now but still go to the zoo - in fact we were there a few weeks ago with my grandson.
