Metal Spear Found (Mar. 15)

This metal spear was collected on the ground by AKTF team & MC rangers while on patrol in the forest…We suspected that the poachers used it to kill a hippo and that why it’s not straight. It also had a small plastic bottle that was attached to it at the end (with a strong string) and was supposed to float while the hippo goes back into the water (for easy monitoring).The team is revisiting the old poachers camps to check whether they are still in use. Its raining heavily in the Mara & poachers might take advantage to kill more wildlife but patrols are still going on to keep the wildlife safe.
