Whistle
Arrived: 1/Dec/2016

The newest resident at the Sanctuary, Whistle the Dikdik is also the smallest. Weighing in at just 600grms and 10cm long, she can easily fit into a size 5 trainer. She kept us busy for 24 hours upon arrival as she was limp with dehydration, shock and fatigue. After sometime on a drip she perked up and was able to drink a significant amount of fluids. She was soon guzzling on milk and being very active. She has one eye full of infection and some injuries to her head and legs, however all seem to be clearing up nicely. Her story is unclear, other than she was rescued by villagers after being found abandoned by the roadside, it is likely that her mother shared the same tragic fate as Kidoko’s.
