Published on the 15th of March, 2021

The SWT/KWS Amboseli Mobile Veterinary Unit attended to eight veterinary cases during February 2021.

Three elephants were treated for injuries, a giraffe was de-snared and the wound treated, an oryx was treated for a neck injury while post-mortems were conducted on 20 flamingos, 3 hyenas and an elephant bull to determine the cause of death. The flamingos died due to starvation, the hyenas died of suspected poisoning while the elephant death was presumed to be natural as there was no human interference.
