KUSA - Greater one-horned rhinos are being poached, even within the borders of protected national parks guarded by armed rangers. The dilemma is the focus of new Nat Geo documentary airing this weekend.
To raise awareness of the problem, "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush traveled to Nepal and joined a group of scientists on a mission to find, capture, sedate, and collar a rhino with GPS device so its movements could be tracked.
Nat Geo Wild filmed the expedition for the special "Chasing Rhinos," premiering Oct. 13, its cameras following Bush to bear witness to shocking evidence of the poaching trade. "If I can be part of saving the life of one rhino," he says, "the effort will be worth it."
