Southern White Rhino

Another successful treatment of a poaching Survivor.

This beautiful Southern White Rhino bull was shot just in front of his left shoulder in a failed poaching attempt.

Together with the local vet, Saving The Survivors Dr. Johan took radiographs of the affected area. Fortunately the bullet did not hit any vital structures, but only damaged soft tissue and went straight through the massive body of the animal.

He was treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatories and he made a complete recovery.

It is important during these difficult times of COVID-19 and lockdown in several countries, to stay positive and look after yourself and your family. But our vets are still out there in the dust and mud of Africa, fighting for our wildlife. Thank you for your continued support to enable us to treat these iconic animals, even during this difficult time!
