Mara Mobile Veterinary Unit Report for November 2020

Published on the 15th of December, 2020

During November, there was moderate rainfall that was evenly distributed within the conservation area, creating plentiful food and water for all wildlife species to utilise.

The SWT/KWS Mara Vet Unit, in collaboration with local partners, was able to help rescue an elephant bull that was stuck for more than 36 hours, after it had slipped into a poorly secured sewage pit. The Unit also treated an elephant and a giraffe for spear wounds, and another giraffe for an arrow injury. A young male lion was treated after being bitten by a cobra and another for bite wounds inflicted in a fight. A case of human-wildlife conflict resulted in 3 dead vultures after they fed on a poisoned carcass, while 2 vultures that were found alive, could fortunately be treated and released.
