Meet Long’uro

On the 18th of April 2020, the Reteti air team was called in at night by Loisaba Rangers, informing them of a bleeding, abandoned calf that had fallen into a well in Loisaba Conservancy. He was in a desperate state. Cries of despair flooded the night, and on inspection, the team discovered that two thirds of his trunk had been lost to a hyena the previous night, whilst stuck in the well.
