In kind hands

Help! What are these people’s plans with me?

Uh, oh! What’s this, a butcher’s slab?

Uh, oh! What’s this, a butcher’s slab?

A THICK-TAILED Bush Baby was exposed to the kind nature of human beings when staring death in the face.
Attacked by dogs in an eShowe garden, the vulnerable little animal was rescued and taken to the Meerensee Veterinary Hospital where X-rays were performed to determine the damage.
It was confirmed that the Bush Baby’s femur (thigh bone) was broken.
The eShowe community who heard of the incident, rallied around and money was soon raised for the operation to place a pin into the broken leg. After the operation he was taken to the Centre for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) in Durban.
This trip was sponsored by eShowe Auto.
He is currently doing well, and provided there are no complications, will have the pin removed and be released back into the forests in eShowe.
A story with a happy ending.
