A couple of day ago we posted about the rescue of a brown hyena in a sting operation. It is heartbreaking to share the terrible news with you that the Pretoria Zoo veterinarian contacted us this morning to ask for you permission to put Nelson to sleep. The animal’s organs have started shutting down despite a small improvement in his condition on day 2-3. His suffering was simply too much and cannot be prolonged. We gave permission for him to be put down, but have made an oath on this day that we will continue to work with the authorities to bring this horrible woman to justice. We will never ever forget Nelson and what he meant to us in the short period we were privileged to know him. We will continue our efforts to infiltrate the leopard smuggling network and to bring the offenders to justice.
