Midmar animal rescue: Drowned wildebeest receives kiss of life from policeman

2008-03-16 00:00

A black wildebeest, terrified at the sight of the many Cordwalles Mudman competitors at Midmar Dam yesterday, plunged into the water and drowned.

"I quickly got up to get a canoe so that I could rescue it, but I was disrupted by three zebras that, out of fear, ran across the competitors. By the time I turned back, there was no wildebeest," he said.
