Another very successful aspect of VFAPU is that we have been able to dart and treat numerous mammals that have been injured through snaring. Through donor funding, VFAPU provides the necessary drugs such as M99, whilst two gentlemen who have their chemical restraint licenses kindly volunteer their services. Officers from the National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority are supportive and present during these operations.
The people living in and around Victoria Falls often have animal related problems due to the fact they are lucky enough to live in a National Park. Certain animals such as this cobra often need to be removed from human inhabited areas. VFAPU assists the residents with situations such as this, and releases the cobra out in the bush farther away from the town.
