Kidoko
Arrived: 7/11/2016

Not more than 24 hours old this tiny Lesser Kudu was brought into TTHQ late one evening after being discovered alone by herders from a nearby village. Certainly one of the youngest animals we have had to care for, it has been a tense few weeks knowing that he can’t have received many antibodies/colustrum from his mother’s milk. We are not certain why he had been abandoned. Sadly it is highly likely that the mother was poached, or scared away by herder’s dogs, which are not just used for stock control but also for hunting. Now 3 weeks old, Kidoko is thriving at the Sanctuary and enjoys the company of Kilonzo, Thia, Funda and of course Shaun, Shiela and Shamus.
