Report from Nick Wirsten
There was a special item on Border News last night, the Head Keeper of the Wildlife Park was being interviewed and she said it had been spotted several times near a chicken run at a nearby farm, so they set up several traps and caught it no problem. She said is was leaner but none the worse for wear but very anxious. In the shots of it, it was possible to see that it was thinner than it's companion and it was moving around in an anxious manner. That was it basically, it's a pity that it didn't remain free and thrive and maybe have found a mate. The enclosure the two of them are in doesn't look too big but is well fenced in.
