This little calf, when just a few months old had an extremely traumatic beginning, suffering two bullet wounds, one to his left foot and another shattering his right leg just above the knee joint. He was first sighted by a DSWT Pilot on the 31st March 2016, while on an anti-poaching patrol over Tsavo East National Park.
