Makosa 1999

Author: Unknown
Year: 1999
Description: Makosa was born on the 1st August l999 in the Rhino Holding Pens in Tsavo to an ex Nairobi Park cow who had been translocated to Tsavo East National Park. Due to the trauma of relocation, plus the side affects of the drugs used, the mother had no milk, so this calf came to us when 3 days old, almost dead for starvation and dehydration. His name means "mistake" in Kiswahili – the mistake being that his mother should never have been a candidate for translocation in the first place, being so heavily pregnant.<br>From: David Shedrick Wildlife Trust,
