A zoo employee in Austria lost his job after it was discovered that he was growing marijuana inside the rhinoceros enclosure.
The Australian reported that a 59-year-old caretaker at Hellbrunn, in western Austria, was able to grow more than 30 marijuana plants in the enclosed area to which only he had access.
One of the caretaker’s customers tipped-off police about his side business and narcotics officers showed up at the zoo in early September.
The zoo said the employee was fired and the plants were removed.
It was not reported whether the rhinoceros had access to the plants.
