Gertje the baby rhino only sleeps when he's comforted. / Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center via Buzz60

It's a sad story with an adorable outcome.

A baby rhino was found crying uncontrollably next to the body of his mother who was killed by poachers. The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center in South Africa rescued the little guy and he's slowly started adjusting.

The baby rhino, Gertje, enjoys mud baths and chasing ostriches, but he still won't sleep alone.

Watch the video to see staff members take turns petting Gertje until he lays his head in their laps and falls asleep.
