Original text on this topic:
To spread the rhino population to the other reserves to prevent overcrowding, the rangers shoot darts that inject a sleeping drug into them. They are then moved while unconscious to the bomas, stout wooden enclosures, where they are kept for three months until. they are docile enough to be transported to the other game reserves. Surprizingly enough the black rhino settles down quicker than the white rhino.
