MANA POOLS 14 JUNE 2015 – Mr V’s foot pad

Video on this that Marnie Kloppers so kindly edited together for KAWFT.

Parks Authorities requested attention from KAWFT for Mr V’s one foot pad that he was having a problem with.

Andries Scholtz darted. The foot was cleaned, meds administered along with wound spray and powder.

When checked a few weeks later there was a vast improvement.

We all were anticipating a fairly easy catch by these 2 hunting lions. But this turned out to be a hilarious fail by them! 🙂
