On the 19th of September KWS Officer Bernard Rono, who heads the DSWT funded Meru mobile Veterinary Unit, reported having received a baby male reticulated giraffe estimated to be just one week old, which had been rescued by KWS rangers on the Meru National Park boundary. The fate of his mother remains a mystery, but the location where he was found happens to be an area bedevilled by human wildlife conflict.
