AKTF Combats Poaching’s High Season (Sept. 8, 2016)

Rescuing a wildebeest from the deadly snare during today’s patrol (by AKTF Team & MC Rangers). Another 4 wildebeests & one zebra were also rescued. The team also removed 69 wire snares,discovered 6 wildebeests slaughtered by the bushmeat poachers and found 2 zebras already dead with snares around the necks. It was by good luck that a group of elephants were feeding on a nearby acacia shrubs but not caught in those snares. Again that’s why its important to remove the snares as first as possible to avoid the wildlife stepping on them. Furthermore, when a snare is well set,it doesn’t discriminate & any wildlife can be caught,die or maimed permanently.
