SIENA UPDATE: We are delighted to report that Siena has almost completely recovered from the injury she received when gored by a buffalo in early April. The photo on the left is Siena was taken right after the incident, and the photo on the right is her almost fully healed wound!
She is once again a very active member of the Marsh Pride, hunting and participating as normal, her wound having healed almost entirely, with just a small remaining patch of fur yet to grow back.
It is thanks to Kenya Wildlife Service veterinary officers Dr. Njoroge and Dr. Limo and the DSWT-funded Sky Vet Initiative that Siena was saved. We would also like to express our thanks to Patrick Reynolds of Governors Camp for his role in first alerting KWS and DSWT of Siena’s injury and his ongoing monitoring of her recovery.
