ZEBRA COLT WITH LOOSE SNARE  13 JUNE 2017


A Resident returning home from assisting with daily snare patrol drop offs reported this Zebra colt with a fresh wire SNARE loosely around his neck and trailing behind and catching on their hooves.

Within minutes of the above report, Parks called us with the same report - Peters Point and Camp Hill turn off just before the dam wall.

Another small herd came in before the darting and there was much tip toeing around each other, baring of teeth and flattened ears before they all calmed down and greeted each other.

 


This was a very difficult area to work in with cliffs, holes, gulley’s, fences and poles with wire stays as well as a very busy main road.

A huge movement of light and very heavy vehicles in this area due to the ongoing installation work of 2 new Generators as well as the Border post traffic

The drivers were ALL very accommodating when stopped or slowed down during the process of the darting.

 

Loose wire snare removed, time to wake up and rejoin the family

 

  
This was Carls first darting on his own and a very good start !!

THANK YOU …. Residents that reported in
