Blood samples taken for research
On return from a trip to Gaborone i was asked to assist park officials in getting blood and stool samples .We managed to dart a Sable Antelope after 4 attempts with darts and we darted a buffalo bull and took blood and fecal samples.BDF assisted us I keeping animals way while we did our work. It was nice to have cooperation.
6/25/2011 Went with veterinary techs from Maun and darted an Elephant, impala and warthog and collected blood and stool samples. BDF assisted us again.
2 good days of hard work and camaraderie were had.All darted animals were not harmed in the process.
