Equipment malfunction has dissapointed before, but not like this! We went to check the trap, and found the trap had been broken 29 times! With all the excitement in the world, we opened the camera box to look at our success! The tracks on the ground indicated that 2 male rhino’s had had a fight, right in front of the trap! I had set new batteries in the flash, and was expecting to retire!
A total of 146 shots were fired, but the batteries in the flash were duds, leaving us with not one picture to talk of! Absolutely gutted!
The only thing to do is to keep trying.
The trap is not out tonight, as I had no time to set it out!
