Meru Mobile Veterinary Report for September 2021

Published on the 15th of October, 2021

September marks the dry month within the Meru Conservation Area coupled with strong winds. Cloud cover has been witnessed though, on several days which could be attributed to climate change.

During the month, illegal human activities has primarily been snaring of animals for bushmeat. Two giraffes were de-snared successfully alleviating pain and suffering and preventing death due to the snares. Poachers are trapping both small and big game since one was meant for small game but ended up ensnaring the giraffes’ limb while the one for large game was specifically for giraffe as it ensnared the neck. Human-wildlife conflict was also witnessed as both human and domestic animals scramble for essential resources with wildlife.
