Chimpanzee That Was Caught in Trap, Goes Home

Amaanyi, a six-year-old chimpanzee was recently returned to her home in Rweshama Forest Reserve in Masindi district on Sunday after being hospitalised in Entebbe for over a month.

The chimpanzee was caught in a trap, which forced doctors to amputate his leg because the bones had been shattered.

Dr. Andrew Seguya, the director of the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) who accompanied the Chimp, said that Amaanyi was taken to UWEC, the former Entebbe Zoo, on July 27 where he underwent two surgeries.

Seguya said chimpanzees were an endangered species, meaning if nothing is done to protect them and their habitat, they would become extinct.

Uganda is home to a large number of chimpanzees found in Kibale national park, Semliki National Park. , Murchison falls National park and Queen Elizabeth National Park
