I have some good news for you. Recently, I have been in touch with the rangers at Buhmans Kloof, and Regardt, the head ranger, sent me some cool pictures of Easter and Rooibos on a springbok kill. Apparently, Easter killed the antilope on May, 26th. The rangers found the kill and put a remote camera close to it. The caracals came back at night on the 27th and 28th. They both seem to be in good health.
I let you discover the pictures, enjoy!

Easter and her cub Rooibos close to the kill
Rooibos (who is growing up fast) and her mother at night close to the springbok kill
Rooibos, with a full belly, is resting close to the carcass his mother killed two days ago
Easter with her GPS radio collar. We can see a small wound on her left leg, probably due to the springbok when she killed it (springboks are three times heavier than caracals!)
On June 26th, 27th and 28th, Anita from the Boland Project and myself will be talking about leopards and tracking caracals at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat. To read more about the previous experience and to book the next exciting trip, click here.
