Grey Duiker Rescued

Duiker 1
On Sunday evening a female grey duiker was saved by members of My Faerie Glen when it was seen bolting down Selikats Causeway in Faerie Glen. The duiker was taken to Valley Farm Animal Hospital where she was kept safe until Hencke Marais from Nature Conservation arrived to collect her.

On Monday she was taken to Onderstepoort where Dr. Johan Steyl tended to her injuries and also discovered that she is pregnant. She was released in the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve on Tuesday by Hencke Marais, aided by Jacques van Rooyen and Alf Joubert from the Friends of the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve.
