Our areas of patrol this month were Ziwani, Ziwani farm, the Railway line from Maktau to Salaita, Makatu area, Kishushe Sanctuary, Oza and Lumo ranches and Salt lick.
Total of 234 snares collected
Our target area this month was the railway line from Makatu trading center to the Salaita area. In the areas surrounding the railway we came across rolls/bundles of wire which had been hidden inside bushes. At Murka we lifted 50 snares which had been set for big game, and we came across the remains of a giraffe in a tree.
