Media Release: Anthrax outbreak in the north of the KNP
“Roan antelopes are some of the rare species in the park and having lost 30 animals will have a very serious impact on the total population which is estimated at about less than 100 animals in the whole park. Rangers are on the ground monitoring the situation and will from time to time report back on their findings” said the KNP’s Head of Department: Public Relations and Communication; Mr William Mabasa.
Anthrax it’s a bacterial fatal disease which is very dangerous to both animals and human beings. People are advised not to touch any carcass found in the park, instead if they see any dead animal, they should report it to the nearest camp.
