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 as they 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. In this case the cobra was released out in the bush away from the town.
