Sanctuary Retreat rescues Giraffe

Sanctuary Stanley’s and Sanctuary Baines’ Camp recently arranged for the Wildlife department’s Anti-Poaching unit to come out and assist with helping a giraffe with a wire snare around his leg, which needed to be removed. Our concession team located the giraffe and had the APU come in and dart the animal with a tranquilizer. They had to dart it in the water, and when the giraffe went to sleep the guys had to keep its head out of the water to prevent it from drowning. They managed to remove the snare and awaken the giraffe without incident. We are happy to report that the giraffe is making a full recovery now.
