Original text on this topic:
Personally I estimated the number of animals as 1000 at the end of my 1961 journey, but I need to revise this after receiving more information. The range of the animal is about 190.000 km?, of which maybe 50% is cultivated or inhabited. With a theoretical density of the animals of 0.02 animals per km? this would give about 2000 animals in the Sudan. In view of population density in Uganda (0.03 animal per km?), this estimate is careful and not too high.
