Masai Mara is divided into two parts each administered by the local council in which the area falls in. The two local councils are divided by the Mara River which cuts through the famous Masai Mara. One of the parts that falls in the Trans Mara district is managed by the Mara Conservancy which is headed by one Bryan Heath and whenever necessary they usually give the Mobile Vet Unit a call for prompt response. On this particular occasion it was a bull elephant that had two spear wounds on the flank and shoulder and required immediate veterinary attention. As we attended to the injured bull another patrol unit was scouring the bushes and endless plains of Mara in search of an Elephant calf about 6 months old spotted a day earlier with a tight cable snare round its front left leg. The search went on initially without success but in the afternoon the young calf was spotted together with her family just as they were entering into a nearby impenetrable river line forest.
