Two cases were attended to in July. The unit did not operate most of July as the vehicle was undergoing repairs in Nairobi. One of the cases was an elephant at Taita Salt Lick with an arrow head on the right thigh. The arrow head was retrieved and the injury cleaned and treated. The prognosis for recovery was good.
The other was a male impala with a snare round the neck near Voi gate. It had no injury.
