Brothers Safaris Veterinary Student Course - Buffalo immobilisation and disease testing - Monday went well despite some students being a little " shell shocked" at first, as usual. The group was soon into it and by lunch time we had immobilized and disease tested all 24 Buffalo. We then attended to a buffalo calf with an eye problem before paying a visit to Frontier Vets Grahamstown.

Several days of lectures and a dart gun practice, the Texas A&M vet students are ready for their first practical tomorrow - 24 buffalo immobilisations for disease testing! In the meantime a malnourished spotted eagle owl juvenile reported outside one of the vet lecturers door this morning for assistance..... The students are doing a great job hand feeding him and nursing him so far!

Tuesday saw Dr Rice and his friends enjoying more game drives and good sightings, and another talk to prepare for today's veterinary work. Today we immobilized a rhino bull to collect DNA and place a tracking collar to help combat poaching - thank you for your participation which funded the rhino costs! We also darted and loaded two LARGE eland bulls for relocation - lots of hard work! And then there was a chopper ride, and that was just the morning... Enjoy your next lodge and game experiences!
