Mugie Ranch – 18th Sept

Just received from Mugie-

The Samburu cattle numbers seem to have really picked up over the last few day coming into Mugie over night. This mornings fence line report shows 13 herds came through last night which is up from 3 to 4 herd last week.

We had a good weekend with the Duathlon and triathlon races, fun was had by all. The LNC acrobats put on a good show and enjoyed by all.

Ngorare Ranch – 17th Sept

Just received from Ngorare-

The situation here is, or has been, persistent daily incursions day and night by over 2,500 from Sugeroi across the full length of the boundary, along with more than 3,000 shoats.  

Along the Simba Matigari side about 2,500 shoats.
Along Mathira into the centre of the ranch we have over 800 head coming in.
Along the section adjacent to Sosian, we have at least 1,000 head of cattle and more than 3,000 shoats.
We are seeing two possible disease outbreaks in wildlife – possible canine distemper in the hyenas, Bat eared foxes, and jackal (we have seen it in the farm dogs). Also, a type of scour in young weaned zebra which is killing them quickly – 3 seen in 3 days. Bound to be more out there.
Weather wise we are happy, but with this level of illegal pressure if the rains stop and are then late things will be hard.
