It’s fascinating to see people use a harness to take a giraffe for a walk. The giraffe is led onto the barge just like it was a child’s pony.
What an awesome rescue. I never dreamed this was even possible.
I don’t understand why it’s going to take so long to rescue 7 more? Seems like they could easily do one a day.
Do we know for sure they’re rescuing these giraffes and not holding a barbecue a few miles downstream?
Anything is possible.
I know the crocodiles are hoping at least one giraffe tries to escape the island on foot.
Thanks so much for posting this! I love hearing about people doing good things. This article might have a bit more information and a bit fewer ads: here.
That is a better article.
I smile every time I see that Giraffe’s head poking out above the barge. She’s watching the riverbank go by.
They didn’t need to cage her. She’s calmy standing on the barge with canvas around her. There’s probably some ropes attached to her harness.
She’s got a hood over her head so she can’t see anything.
Yeah, she’s been tranqed and hooded to keep her calm. Still, a life saved is a good thing.
My imagination got carried away with the imagery. It makes sense they had to cover the giraffe’s eyes.
Well, see, they also have a bag of hay, a lion, and only a very small boat.
