Help Oscar...

In one of the countries north of South Africa there is one more tragedy of the African rhino poaching epidemic. Rhino Oscar is wandering around with a snare on his leg (photo taken at night - note the swelling on his left front leg). The snare broke off where it was tied to a tree and the poachers haven’t got him yet but if he’s not treated promptly he will die and be as good as poached. In this same country a Chinese woman was recently apprehended at the capital’s airport with ivory and a rhino horn. The rhino in this country have been lucky until now but obviously that luck has run out - the hyenas have smelled blood and they will be looking for their next opportunity!  

Dr Pete Morkel, a vet with Back to Africa, is trying to raise the money to get to Oscar to treat him. Pete will give his time but he needs some money (US $1700) for an air ticket and the veterinary supplies he will use. If you can help with this please send it to Back to Africa.

We will keep you all updated on Oscars’ treatment.
