We treated a Rhino that has a wound which formed an abscess on the outside skin. The Vet, Dr Gerhardus Scheepers seems certain the would is as a result of the Rhino being shot some time ago. We have treated this same Rhino before. The wound should heal completely though it will take some time.
Pilanesberg has lost 10 Rhinos to poaching this year so far. That is 10 too many for us on the ground! We continue to do what we can with the resources avail to protect all the animals in the Park. However as long as the demand is there, the killing won’t stop.
Thank you very much to Nico Jacobs and Rhino911 for covering both the vet costs and the chopper costs! We truly appreciate the support and passion.
