Two snares removed from one hyena

January 2024
A large female hyena was spotted limping with a snare around her neck and leg

Together with 3 other organisations, Wild Wonderful World funded the immobilisation and treatment of a snared female hyena just across from the Manyeleti boundary on the Sabi Sands Nature Reserve. The hyena had a double-looped, copper wire snare around the neck and a cable snare around the hind-leg. Despite the double snare injury, the operation was a success and the veterinary team expects a full recovery.

Thanks to the Wildscapes Veterinary team & to our Snare Rescue Group partners for joining forces in funding this rescue!
