A Successful Treatment;

On the 10th November 2014, one of Africa’s last Tuskers (known as Tim) has been successfully treated for a deep septic wound caused by a spear attack, most probably by a poacher.

Each step of the treatment process has been documented here.

Tim’s story provides evidence that not only can elephants survive poaching attacks, but with the correct support and well timed actions of dedicated humans, they can be treated successfully too.
