Bad luck for baby warthogs

07 October 2011

As much as we enjoy exploring this beautiful park, you come across exciting as well as worrying scenes. As we drove off yesterday afternoon we came along these two very tiny warthogs. Not older than two weeks, they really shouldn’t have been out there all alone. Dribbling clumsy over the sandy path without a clear direction in mind, its apparent they lost their normally so caring mother.

Likely to be separated by a predator or some other bad luck, the sad thing is that they won’t stand a chance without their mum.

As we approached them they sat down on the side of the road shivering from rain or fear – or both. Let’s hope hard for these two wonderful creatures. They might be lucky.
