You might be interested to know that Wolhuters grandson is still involved with conservation and about 2 years ago he had a blog where he was reporting on a wild dog pack, in Zambia I think? He is also the "star" of a couple of National Geographic documentaries about hyenas. You might be able to track him down with this info and he might be able to help you Try this website

I have made contact with Kim. He do not have any more info than me. I know my Grandfather was stationed at Barberton and that is where Harry Wolhuter was taken after the attack. I presume that it might be there that oupa helped him.

Hello Takhaar

My little boy (now 5) absolutely love the tale about Harry Wolhuter. I will show him the lion claw - see if I can print your photo out for him to take to school. They are going on a trip to the Kruger and I suggested to the teacher that each child have to find out something about the Kruger to tell the other children. This is the best way for them to learn. You have a wonderful momentum to keep in your family.

Hi Lolliepop

If they go to Skukuza they must visit the library and museum, because there is an exhihibition of the lion and the story of Harry Wolhuter.
