KWS vet Dr. Dominic was quick to respond to a sick elephant the rangers found near Zulu 1. From the wound it seemed that the elephant was shot in the leg with an arrow. The wound was very septic. Dr. Dominic removed all the pus and gave her a shot of IM penicillin. The cow elephant is still in the area with calf and being monitored closely.
