Friday: Inside Story – Cry of the Kalahari: Part 2 — 1 Comment

  1. This story happened in 1974 at Kanye Hospital in Botswana. My dad, Dr. Harold Frank (now passed away) was one of the doctors there at the time. I remember, as a teen, seeing the bushman sitting on a low wall outside of the hospital a few months after the incident. My dad told me the story as Dr. Seligman wrote about it, however a couple of more interesting details. My dad, who was one of the doctors who operated on the bushman said, that it took about a week for the bushman to make it to the hospital, by then his intestines were very infected and they thought they were going to lose him right on the operating room table. He and the others were very surprised to see the bushman come through, and felt that due to the bushmans outdoor lifestyle, that they had a very strong immune system. Also the buck that had gored the bushman was a Kudu, which is the second largest African antelope. Rather surprised to see a pic of a smaller White tailed deer, which is only seen in North America in the article. LOL!
