Apart from the kill the site I found that the boys had made the previous night (a Springbok ram), very little happened again yesterday. The 5 fought the cold, overcast weather while digesting next to the fence. I, on the other hand, once again spent the entire day searching for our long-lost Shanti. We’ve starting to run out of places to look so the plan for today is to sit everyone down and discuss our options. We’ll have to make a decision on what to do soon though I think, before she gets too far…
Last evening, I did manage to sit down with the group from the Indianapolis Zoo though. They were a good group and had lots of intelligent, challenging questions. I hopefully satisfied them on the behavioural and tracking science of things. All in all, a good evening. It’s a shame we never got out to see the cheetahs here but as they’re leaving this morning there just wasn’t time. They’ll get their fill up at CCF though.
Today we’ll start construct, training and continue looking for our girl. I’ll be in touch soon with more information.
