The area received minimal sporadic precipitation over the month, during which time the annual wildebeest migration began in earnest. Water and fodder for grazers is available and large carnivores/scavengers have benefited from the migrating wildebeests. The Unit attended to 7 cases involving 3 lions, 1 leopard, 2 elephants and a zebra.
Two of the lions were treated for natural causes and another was collared. One elephant was attended to for a spear injury caused in a case of human-elephant conflict, while another was treated for a spear wound likely caused by poaching. The leopard was treated for a bite wound and the zebra for injuries inflicted during a predation attempt.
