Jaco's final fight - a documentary film
A conservation dream has ended in a brutal attack. On Tuesday, 12 February, 2019, a painted pack of five African wild dogs was callously persecuted. Situated close to Windhoek International Airport and the Naankuse Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary, the Zannier Reserve by Naankuse acts as a haven for wildlife – a haven that instead became a scene of brutality.
Two wild dogs lost their lives, with a third severely injured and fighting for his life in the Naankuse Veterinary Clinic. Tragically, just three days later, he lost the fight despite our very best efforts.
This film is for Nadia, Jaco and Desert. Your deaths will not be in vain!
