Baye says it best, “There’s nothing better than returning rescued orphans back into the wild.”
From being kept in a small cage to living free.
Macho and Sabre are two gorgeous Serval Cats. A young man had them in a small cage for several years. Then, when he left home his mother jumped on the opportunity to set them free. But, didn’t know how. She contacted Baye Pigors with Free to be Wild just outside Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
Baye went to visit the young Servals. Yes, they were still wild enough that a successful rehab and return to the wilds looked promising.
However, Baye didn’t yet have a predator enclosure at her relatively new rescue and rehabilitation center, Free to be Wild. She reached out to us for help. With the help of our donors and a few others on the ground the enclosure was built and the Serval Cats moved to their new temporary home.
After numerous months of strengthen their muscles, feeding them correctly and giving them opportunity to hunt they were ready. Baye had found them a large game farm. No Servals were current residents. The food supply was deemed good.
A transition enclosure was built at the release site. To get the two rescued orphans familiar with their new surroundings and to do some final testing of their hunting skills.
Then with tracking collars in place everything was a go.
Now a month later the two marvelous looking Serval Cats are free once more.
“Freedom for our Felines! Over a month of being free these beauties are thriving! There is nothing better than returning rescued orphans back into the Wild and watching them own it!!” – Baye Pigors.
Great work Baye and the team at Free to be Wild.
