To hear this story of his mother suffering is a real tragedy. See below.  We were called to find refuge for her little boy, but we so wish we were called to help his mother; at least a pain-free departure from our cruel world. Her legacy is little Oreo. The reserve has our details now & have been told to call anytime for help & advice.

A statement from the lady that helped ensure Oreo got to the sanctuary;

“On the morning of the 31st of May 2019, my 70th-year-old mother had placed a watermelon in front of our yard for the birds, like she did many of times. Our dog was in the back yard and around 10 am the morning she heard an uproar at the back. When she had seen that our dog is in a fight with the mother of Tshiko (Oreo), she has contacted us to go and assist whereby my mother had placed her own life in danger to split the two apart. The dog was placed in our home in the meantime. The mother of Tshiko (Oreo) have calmed down and she was fed (apples and bread), she was struggling to eat, due to her injuries. We had contacted the Park Rangers to come to safely remove the mother and Tshiko (Oreo) to a safe place. When they have arrived at our home, they have inspected the mother but you could see the mother is busy dying and that her life is leaving her body. This was very heartbroken to see for all of us involved. She has given her little boy Tshiko (Oreo) over to us without any fight, and she just waved with her hand, showing that we must leave. Tshiko (Oreo) had called her a few times in order for us all involved to see if the mother will be moving towards the vehicle of the Park Rangers, while he was safely in my arms but mommy didn’t make any sound she just sat in the corner and waved her hand again and looked away. Her eyes have started to go glassy, she was leaning against the wall with her head downwards and very quiet and calm. We had removed Tshiko (Oreo) to a different home to make sure that he is not traumatized further. The Park Rangers were also in contact with a Rescue Centre and after 5 hours they have decided that the human thing to do is to shoot her. Yes, the wrong rifle was used and all involved were not happy about that, but she was not blown to pieces nor alive afterwards. There were no traces of blood in our yard afterwards. She was handled with compassion by all involved until the end and yes her legacy is our little Tshiko (Oreo). Tshiko (Oreo) is loved by all involved.”
