Bokkie Bok

Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, HESC, duiker

Our friendly grey duiker, Bokkie Bok, unfortunately developed an abscess in her mouth 2 weeks ago. When the curators noticed the swelling on the side of her mouth, they decided to take her to the vet. A simple incision was made to allow fluids to drain from the infected area.

We are happy to report that Bokkie Bok is now feeling much better, if her appetite for boskos is anything to go by. Spekboom is still one of her favourite treats.
