I got a picture of myself…


…but that’s not exactly what I wanted – camera traps are nasty things. At least it wasn’t completely my fault, we all saw the flash go off. After scanning in the morning instead of cleaning the goat kraal I was assigned to scanning. Sad stories are buried in those folders, but that’s nothing we’re supposed to read anyway. Just scanning, page after page after page…

After dinner this continued. Well, at least that’s what I was aiming to do, but many things kept me from fulfilling my task. For example, there was suddenly a cub workout on the schedule. They anaesthetised the  little one in order to be able to stitch a wound on his leg he got somewhere. Since they shaved parts of his leg I was able to grab a minuscule amount of cub fur 😀

Tomorrow’s going to start with a cheetah run – we still don’t know anything about the details of the video project we are supposed to do yet, but we figured that starting to get some footage of what you can experience at the CCF would be a nice thing to do. We’ll probably ask people if they’re fine giving opinions and interviews on CCF and try to have the video camera with us at all times so we can capture any striking impressions. Since I will also be on another feeding run tomorrow I might try to get some footage of that as well.
