Meru Mobile Veterinary Unit Report for November 2021

Published on the 15th of December, 2021

During November, the ecosystem continued to endure unfavourable conditions for wildlife due to failed rains during this particularly long dry season as regarded locally. The remaining vegetation has dried up and been over utilized by the animals, similarly water pans have run dry leaving animals with only rivers to drink from. Thankfully, the rivers into the park have continued to flow, providing sufficient water to support the remaining wildlife and there are signs that rains could be on the way.

The SWT?KWS Meru Veterinary Unit attended to four cases in November, including the post-mortem of an elephant which was inconclusive but presumed natural, treatment of a lion due to starvation, treatment of an elephant for a bullet wound and snare removal from an oryx.
