The Cipotegato, the central character of the annual Cipotegato festival, is pelted with tomatoes in the main square of Tarazona. The festival begins with the Cipotegato, who is secretly elected each year, running into the square where thousands of people are waoting to throw tomatoes at him as he scales a monument and ties a scarf around it, signaling the start of the main festivities. The festival derives from the 18th century tradition of giving a local prison inmate the chance to escape to freedom.

Kenyan rangers, veterinarians and wildlife reserve workers position a tranquilized wild female black rhino named Tupac for transport at the Lewa wildlife conservancy. Eleven of Lewa's total 73 endangered black rhinos are being moved to the neighboring Borana conservancy where they'll have more range. Borana currently has no rhinos and is hoping to help increase their numbers. The horn of each rhino is cut and a tracking device is fitted to monitor its movements and to help combat poaching. Lewa has suffered severe poaching in the past. Illegally poached rhino horn is sold for large sums as an ingredient in some traditional Chinese medicine.
