Shaq the zebra was found abandoned, with a badly broken leg, at just three weeks old. The Rhino Orphanage in South Africa rescued Shaq and helped him get the surgery he needed. The beautiful animal had to have his bones realigned and get pins in his leg.
Shaq struggled to walk, but after loads of love and attention, he found his stride again and is running with confidence. His rescuers have fallen in love with him and so have we. Now four months old, he’s doing much better and making new friends. The Rhino Orphanage has updated fans on its Instagram page, writing, “Shaq has done so well over the past few weeks and the team is ecstatic.”
