Bella steps into the breach for missing rhino on Go! Rhino trail
1:40pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
With two rhinos sadly forced from the trail due to vandals, this young rhino seeker took the opportunity to help out.
Bella Penton stepped into action to ensure those following the trail didn’t miss out on any rhino spotting, posing as one of the sculptures with an ice cream perfectly placed to imitate the horn.
The 11-year-old struck the rhino pose as she embarked on the trail that continues throughout Southampton until September 22.
As previously reported, two of the sculptures, Not a Target and Cosmos Rhino were seriously damaged by thugs who kicked holes into them both, forcing Marwell to remove them from the trail for repairs.
Bella is the latest entry into the Daily Echo’s Go! Rhinos photo competition, looking for the most imaginative ways to have your picture taken with one of the rhinos, without touching it.
The winning photo will win a Junior Experience worth £150, which gives one lucky youngster an unforgettable opportunity to be a zookeeper for the day.
The best of the rest will appear in a special souvenir supplement of photographs at the end of the trail.
Just email your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, address, contact telephone number and the names and ages of those in the picture, plus where they are from.
