11 of these cases attended to involved elephants whilst 1 case included the emergency evacuation of a KWS ranger to Nairobi having been attacked by a rhino during an operation.
Of the elephant cases there were 6 poisoned arrow cases, 1 snare case, 1 spear case, 2 cases relating to natural causes and 1 rescue. Out of the 12 cases treated there was an 83% success rate. Without rapid veterinary response, the majority of these cases would have died from their injuries.
