Impala

By fotobee  
Tulbagh South Africa.

Photo taken at the Wolseley Nature Park from a long way off. This group of Impala were part of a larger herd which split up on seeing us. They are in a fairly large camp, about 1 square km, so can be classed as "Semi wild", and fairly spooky. The veldt is in a pristine state, and is ungrazed and uncut, except for the game here.

Thank you all for looking at, voting for and commenting on my Dove in a cave photo. This was all very welcome !

When the rioters broke through the police cordon a few days ago, I said that there was no damage done. This was incorrect, as a few houses away they were throwing sizeable stones which were shattering windows before the police managed to chase them. One woman which we know had to flee for her life after bundling her child and pets in the car, and only returned a day later. Later on, at night, another group tried to burn a car port, but the police were waiting for them, and arrested them, only to let them go again a few days later. As we live in a thatched residence we are feeling very vulnerable, as one "Molotov cocktail" will burn us to the ground. We think that this is related to the coming elections, and linked to the policy the largest party has publicly stated. This is to make the Cape "Unruleable" by the DA, and seems to be part of the grand scheme of things.

Uneasy and worrying times !

Best regards
Martin
