Red Hartebeest killed in Atterbury

It has been a sad week for FGNR. One of the Red Hartebeest escaped and was killed in Atterbury Road. It is still unclear how the animal escaped and if there are more animals missing.

Please help us with the following:

– If you notice any game that is not inside FGNR, please call us immediately. There should not be any game in the green areas around FGNR.

– If you notice any places where the game can escape, take a photo if possible and email us at

Please help us count the game inside FGNR, especially the Red Hartebeest. There should be 8 Red Hartebeest, but to our knowledge only 5 have been seen together this week. Note that the north-eastern corner of the reserve, about a quarter of the area, is not accessible by hiking trails so they might still be there. Please email numbers through to
