Dispatcher Files

We received a call some time back from a member advising that they had discovered a dead duiker that had been caught in a snare within the Kloof Gorge Nature Reserve. Our member was distressed as she was concerned that there might be other snares in the reserve that could cause the death of other wildlife.

Our member lives close to the Kloof Gorge Nature reserve and reported that she had previously witnessed groups of people poaching Wildlife within the reserve. She was considering entering the reserve that night to chase off the group of poachers. We advised her not to enter the reserve as these poaching groups are often armed and dangerous.

We immediately reported the incident to the Ezemvelo Wildlife KZN District Conservation Officers and other role players concerned with poaching in the area.

We followed up with our member later that evening and she confirmed that authorities had visited the reserve and had removed several snares in the local area. An animal that was trapped in a snare that was unharmed was released. She was very pleased that we had assisted in getting the required authorities on scene. This member is passionate about wildlife and we encouraged her to report all incidents so that necessary action can be taken.
