Giraffe Rescue

National Geographic captured a harrowing rescue when a giraffe was discovered with metal wire dangerously wrapped around its neck in Mikembo Sanctuary, Democratic Republic of the Congo. A team of rescuers banded together to tranquilize and capture the large animal, and remove the wire.
