The areas patrolled were the general area of Ziwani, Jipe, Maktau, Lumo and Kishushe wildlife sanctuary.
This was a follow up of the July patrols and a total of 616 snares were collected. Apart from Kishush where snaring is for smaller animals, the rest of the areas were covered in snares designed for larger animals. We arrested six poachers and unfortunately three managed to escape, one of the poachers was found with 14 Dikdiks.
