During the course of the month of January the following areas were patrolled by the Mtito de-snaring team: Kilaguni, Chyulu gate, Mtito River, Kanga, Kenani, Mangelete, Tsavo River and The Triangle.
48 SNARES COLLECTED 1 ARREST
After the Christmas break the team embarked on a desnaring mission that began in The Triangle. Lots of footprints were seen that had been dented by the rains. There were many hideouts some of which looked active.
During our patrols we came across several shooting platforms strategically placed along elephant tracks.
Logging is also taking place in some areas. Unfortunately the culprits escaped as they heard us approaching.
