Buffalo-gored ranger on mend

THE KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife game ranger who was attacked by a wild Buffalo on Tuesday says "he is lucky to be alive".

Fohlo Simelane, 51, was gored by a buffalo in the leg as he was patrolling the game park on foot this week.

He was admitted to the Bay Hospital's Intensive Care Unit in a critical condition due to blood loss. He has since been moved to a surgical ward. - Khulekani Mazibuko
