Giraffe causing consternation

A GIRAFFE that is believed to have escaped from a wildlife sanctuary between Windhoek and Okahandja caused a dangerous situation for motorists travelling between the two towns on Saturday night.


Members of the emergency services from Windhoek were dispatched to the scene along with game warders of the Okapuka game farm outside the capital to coax the animal back behind the game fence and out of harm’s way.

The animal crossed was seen by several motorists near the premises of Voermeester and the gate to the Okapuka game farm next to the B1 Road.


One of the emergency workers cautioned motorists to be vigilant when driving between Windhoek and Okahandja to avoid a collision with the animal.
