R.I.P.

Good afternoon everyone…

Last week I told you about one of my favourite old males in the park called Murtu. After a gamedrive yesterday I found his remains, and i must admit, it was horrible to see him like this!

But it gives the younger males in the area chance to be king! I will definitely miss him! R.I.P!! I enclose a photo of him in his prime, the way i would like to remember him!!!

PS. Ill post some photos of Saturdays black tie event tommorrow!

Take a look and let me know what you think…


Cheers til tomorrow.

  1. Hi Hannes, that is so sad, but as we know nature must take its course. I had to put our 18 year old cat to sleep last week, so i am feeling very low about an cats that have to die. RIP Murti and Misty Loftus !!

  3. Hallo Hannes, although clearly upsetting for you, I think this is a really important and interesting photo which illustrates the brutal reality of the veld. People who have little or no experience of the bush often possess very sentimental views of what takes place within these systems, and fail to appreciate the cold nature of the processes which occur at every level. Fortunately these are all drivers of evolution, which make the flora and fauna of the bush so amazing for us to experience!
