During May 2019, Amboseli Mobile Veterinary Unit (AMVU) attended to eight wild animals that required veterinary intervention.
A giraffe and zebra were treated, while two elephants were examined to establish cause of death. A lion and one elephant were attended but could not be treated due to individual limitations in either case: The team attempted to find the lion in the Chyulus for a second time but were met with unnavigable terrain and loss of VHF signal after a full day's search. The lion was later reported to have joined its pride. An emaciated elephant at Imbirikani was estimated to be in-calf and immobilization for any treatment could worsen the condition. An elephant at Ithumba could also not be traced for treatment due to dense bush thicket. A description of the cases attended during May follows in the subsequent pages of the report.
