Watusi in Africa

As we go through our days we never know where something will get our attention from social media.  One of our Board members, Don Morgan, shared a photo on Facebook asking if anyone knew where it was taken.

I checked it out and contacted the photographer to answer the question and see if he would allow us to publish it.  “Hi Clint, Someone shared your lovely photos of watusi (ankole longhorn cattle) on Facebook. Where were these taken?  Would you mind if we published them on the World Watusi Association website (www.watusi.org). If so do you have any story you would like to share with us? Cindi Darling”

Clint’s response:

“Hi Yes no problem. The fotos were taken in Western Tanzania. Unfortunately because of medicines and vaccines and poisoning of natural predators the herds are getting to big and they are being taken into the National parks and Game reserves to graze and now the herds men r poaching the wildlife. Very sad. Fotos were taken just outside Kigosi game reserve. It also seems they r immune to the tsetse fly carried sleeping sickness or Nagana as I know it.”
