A rare site on the 400+ acre private reserve for endangered species. These animals know how and where to hide. During the Tubbs (2017) and Kincade (2019) firestorms; the Ankole-Watusi cattle's survival mode served them well. In this photo, bull, calf, cow; the Ankole-Watusi make their way to the large reservoir to quench a thirst brought on by 3 digit temperature. The name of the cattle is derived from the Ankole group of Sanga cattle breeds of central Africa characterized by very large horns. The Ankole-Watusi were imported to Germany as zoo specimens in the early twentieth century.
