Dr. Joao treats an Elephant with a suspected snare.

The STS Team in Mozambique collaborated with Peace Parks Foundation and The Administração Nacional das Áreas de Conservação to treat an Injured Elephant in the remote Zinave National Park {ZNP}
The anti-poaching rangers of ZNP in Mozambique, reported seeing an Elephant with what seemed to be a snare injury. STS vets immediately flew to ZNP and immobilised the giant pachyderm, fortunately no snare was found. The cause of the limp seen by the rangers was in fact a deep cut in the pad of the right back foot.
The wound was cleaned and treated and we expect a full recovery.
