WILDLIFE EMERGENCY RESCUE UNIT MENDS OLD WOUNDS

This past week, our Head Veterinarian and Wildlife Emergency Rescue Unit (WERU) Manager, Dr. Amanda Lee Salb, was called out to a national park to help locate two Waterbucks with old wire snare wounds. The team had been observing their movements over the course of a few weeks to make locating them a bit easier when Dr. Salb arrived. She was able to dart them for sedation, remove the snare from one and clean up the wounds on both animals. The WERU project is generously sponsored by our partners at Born Free Foundation and Olsen Animal Trust
