CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man who was visiting the Cincinnati Zoo on Tuesday was bitten by a rhinoceros, officials said.

“Kendi, 1-year-old rhino, nipped the tip of an adult male’s right index finger during a behind the scenes encounter earlier today. The guest is being treated for a minor injury and expected to be fine,” zoo officials said in a tweet.

In July 2017, an eastern black rhino named Seyia gave birth to a healthy calf named Kendi.

Kendi is the first black rhino born at the Cincinnati Zoo since 1999.
