Mara Mobile Veterinary Unit Report for March 2021

Published on the 15th of April, 2021

This month was characterised by poor precipitation with high daytime temperatures. As a result, the area remained dry for most of the period with watering points drying up.

Incidents of snaring within conservancies continued to be the reason for most callouts in March, however, levels were down on previous months. The Unit attended to three snared zebras, the rescue of one giraffe from a deep swamp which sadly did not survive, the treatment of a lion for fight wounds and the recovery and relocation of a hyena that had been trapped after preying on livestock.
