Meet the beautiful baby water buffalo Kra-tong who was living with her herd when she unfortunately developed some rather severe symptoms. She suffered genital fly-strike (maggot infestation) leading to rectal prolapse. On the back of a pickup truck under the guidance of our amazing doctor, we put her back together. To ensure she’s healing properly and to continue treatment, she stayed with us for a short while. She is such a gentle, precious being and during her time spent at Pete’s Mission, she attached herself to me and was happy to have company of our & – crew.
However, soon enough she was well enough to be reunited with her mother. The moment Kra-tong found her mum in the herd was beautiful for all of us to witness. Please let us remember that a mother’s milk is for her baby and for her baby only.
