Durban - A game ranger was seriously injured when he was attacked by a black rhino in the Mkhuze game reserve on Thursday, KwaZulu-Natal emergency management services said.

An air ambulance could not reach the ranger because of poor weather in the area, in northern KwaZulu-Natal, so colleagues took him to an ambulance waiting for him at the reserve's gate, spokesperson Robert McKenzie said.

"Circumstances surrounding the... attack are at this stage still being determined," McKenzie said.
