2016’s First Elephant Incident

More sickening poacher’s indiscriminate snaring of a baby elephant……..this cruelty must end.

It has only been a few days into the new year and we already have the first animal incident. SkyVet team has reported that they have been busy responding to the Mara after a baby elephant calf was sighted with a horrendous snare wound on its hind leg.(WARNING GRAPHIC PICTURES)

1920’s Cottars camp scouts met the team who flew in early afternoon, and drove them to the Olderekesi Wildlife Conservancy where the snared baby elephant and mother were being monitored in a herd of approximately 12 elephants.

Fred Oring’a, a KWS Vet working with SkyVets on this case, promptly prepared two darts, one for the mum who had a spear wound injury to her back and one for her stricken baby. Treatment of the calf was carefully done and a cable snare cut away having penetrated deep into the flesh of the left hind leg, almost reaching the bone.

    My new year’s wish is to have those that maim and kill these precious elephants are phased out in any and all ways that it takes (perhaps a snare that causes a slow and painful death).
    I’m a very compassionate person, but it bothers me not at all to rid of these evil monsters – to me, they are not humans and they belong in a place much fiery than planet Earth.
