A GIRAFFE LIFE IS SAVED FROM POACHERS USING A WIRE SNARE….

 Anti-Poaching Unit for the wildlife department helped to free a giraffe caught in a snare.

Sanctuary Stanley’s and Baines Camps arranged for the Anti-Poaching unit to come out and assist us to help the giraffe. It had a wire snare around its leg which needed to be removed. Our concession team located the giraffe and had the APU come in and dart the animal with a tranquilizer. They had to dart it in the water, when the giraffe went to sleep the guys had to keep its head out of the water to prevent it from drowning. They managed to remove the snare and awaken the giraffe without incident.

We are happy to report that the giraffe is making a full recovery now!

“We need to preserve our wildlife and help out wherever possible, and this was a great effort by all involved!”
