The big day finally arrived. The team started early to avoid any unnecessary unsettling changes in the rhinos’ normal morning routine. Straight after their morning bottles of milk both rhinos were tranquilized with a potent cocktail of drugs. Once the drugs took effect the capture team moved in, notching both rhinos ears for future identification purposes, drawing blood to analyse for health/disease checks and fitting a horn transmitter to the older Bebrave to aid post-release monitoring.
