A rhino ran amok at Ruma National Park in Homa Bay during the relocation of the beasts.
Wildlife Minister Noah Wekesa scampered for safety when the rhino tried to overturn the cage where they had taken cover.
Experts said the stressed beast had felt the presence of human beings and acted to protect itself.
One KWS official held the minister to stop him from falling off the cage.
Interestingly, 20 minutes later the rhino stopped pushing the cage and joined others in the grazing field.
