The ongoing story of our lone waterbuck....


Then she was seen bathing in the waterhole below the camp for several days. This is unusual: A female adult waterbuck all by herself for several days. Yesterday afternoon we went down to have a closer look. On the way down we saw a group of about 12 waterbuck near the water hole, but she had been by herself all day. We made a film of her in the water and then caught her on camera as she walked/limped out of the water. The right hind leg is cut and swollen... She is dragging a piece of string or metal wire behind her. She limps and is obviously in pain. She's probably been caught in a snare but has managed to drag the snare clear of the bush.

This morning she was not there at the water hole, but at lunch time she was seen grazing and laying up next to the water hole. It's hot out there in the sun.
Stats of waterbuck: average weight 160kg, average height 120cm, average danger to Jackie and Hannes on rescue attempt = high, average time to re-think plan =maybe tomorrow. Question: Should we try to get the snare off or not?
