This past two weeks we have been busy working with giraffes, two bulls that need to be translocate from one reserve to other to bring new genetics to it and prevent the inbreeding of the animals; we were busy aswell taking blood samples and microchiping Impalas, Sable and Roan antílopes, aswell as we had to dart one Sable that was showing neurological signs, it end up being a toxic response due to and intoxication with a poisonous plant; we conduct the inmobilitation, microchiping and blood sampling of Buffalo calfs, their moms and two bulls (they were going to be transferred to other reserve) and we conducted this work with the State veterinarians because of the zoonosis that Buffalo can bring to humans it is always needed to do health checks and confirm they are in good condition; one Sable had an abscess that must to be treated; we found a chameleon on the side of the road and put him back in the bush to prevent to be killed by a car; we conduct aswell outreach work in a rural community helping dogs and their owner with health checks, vaccinations, deworming, as well as offering the opportunity of free sterilizations and treatment on a clinic of the really disease animals, this work was conducted with Hoedspruit AnimaL Outreach, their work is being growing and they are changing the life of so many dogs.
