Anywhere wild animals and humans overlap, there’s bound to be fallout of some kind or another. Vultures versus powerlines, predators versus farm animals, antelope on roads versus vehicles, the odd problem animal finding its way into the pantry, or hand-raised animals that have lost their cuteness and grown into their teeth – it’s usually the animals that come off, if not dead last, then second best, often with lasting scars and permanent injuries. When this happens, it’s the people at places like Moholoholo who step in to help.
Moholoholo is home to any number of wild animals of every species that have either lost the human/wildlife battle for space or food, have grown up in an unnatural environment, or have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. At any given time you could find lions, leopards, caracals, and hyenas, vultures, any raptor, and ground hornbills, as well as duikers, zebras and giraffes, and even mongooses, tortoises and honey badgers. Some will stay forever, with injuries or bad habits that prevent them from returning to the wild, but wherever possible, animals that come to the centre are rehabilitated and released back into the wild.
