On the night of 17th September 2013, at 10.30pm, our Meru Mobile Veterinary Unit arrived together with a Kenya Wildlife Service vehicle and rangers with a rescued elephant. This elephant has huge, approximately between 4 – 5 years old, and had been observed for nearly a month on community lands in Kimunye in Kirinyaga County – The community had constantly reported sightings of this elephant, all alone without a herd, but deep in community lands on the slopes of Mount Kenya in recent weeks .
