A female duiker lamb was rescued from a Large Grey Mongoose. She had a broken right foreleg (radius and ulna), with multiple bites on the leg.
Inspector Julia Watson of the SPCA initially bandaged the leg. She was then brought to us by Craig Hosken of Craigsview the following day for X-rays, which showed an oblique fracture of both bones, with severe overriding of fragment ends.
She was anaesthetised and Dr Bruggemann placed a steel pin inside the radius, buried fully to avoid need for later surgery to remove the pin.
She was then sent back to Craigsview
Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre for further nursing, after being christened
