***NEW DAY AT PETE'S POND***
Pete's Pond Cam Discussion - Saturday 25 August, 2007
A human trap?...as in to trap humans?
That bokkie seems to be seriously considering how thirst it is
The cam op said that Pete was happy and surprised the Eland with the broken jaw survived and is back again this season.
Snare is a human trap. Seems many animals come in contact with them.
I will say that Fatty adds a whole different dimension to this pond.
What is a snare? Some kind of trap for some animal?
Seems like its been guzzling for about 40 mins now. I looked to see if the cam was frozen.
Brave Eland at the WH now. Sure is hanging around for a long time even tho fatty's around. Seems not to be scared at all.
Yep I saw that too. it is ashame with everything else they have to deal with, they also have to watch for the snares...it was gross how infected they get. Remember the one that had a snare around her truck..poor thing..
I didnt know they had said that about this ellie. they can dart him and take the snare off and just load him up with anitbiotics usually they do pretty good after.
Penzi, I think the elephant was said to have had a snare. I heard Pieter I believe say that. Someone on NG said that Djuma was tracking the ellie and would call in the vets to see what could be done. I saw a show on tv about the pigmy elephants and loads of them have the same type of snare injury as the Ellie at Djuma. They have been removing the snares from the affected pigmy elephants.
Yeah I read that Aquila what ashame huh..I was wondering if the injured ellie at djuma had a snare catch his leg and this is the after effect....
