Original text on this topic:
Diceros bicornis. Intensive management facilities. These are small properties on which semi-tame rhinos are maintained through artificial feeding. There are two such properties: lmire Game Park (Hwedza area) and Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage (Bulawayo area). The rhinos were handraised, following deliberate separation from their mothers during capture operations in 1986 and 1987 (this practice has been discontinued). It has become apparent that there are serious constraints to the breeding of rhinos in these situations.
