Amboseli Mobile Veterinary Report for December 2023

Published on the 15th of January, 2024

In December 2023, the Southern Conservation Area experienced rainy weather.

The Amboseli Mobile Veterinary Unit attended to 4 cases involving 3 animals i.e. a rhino, a hyena, and a lion that was initially successfully treated for spear wounds on 19/12/2023 and subsequently speared to death a few days later. December was a tough month for the veterinary team since all the other cases attended to were post-mortems. The autopsies the team carried out found evidence of human involvement in the death of all these animals.
