The South American tapir, also called Bush Cow, is native to Guyana and several other South American countries. The South American tapir can be friendly, but it is known to attack humans, especially children, not for food, but perhaps out of anxiety.
A group of miners in Guyana’s interiors has befriended a bush cow and turned it into their pet. They named the tapir “Rhino.”
This video, republished with permission from Mr. Neil Brock, who is one of the group of miners, shows them fondly feeding the pet tapir with sweets.
