Please remember the copyright rules about posting images up on Safaritalk. Rainbirder, I guess these are not yours?

Absolutely not (my images) Matt.
I simply included links to these Flickr accounts -all of which have their privacy settings set for full visibility. The second link was to a photo set but instead of a link tab it seems to have initiated a direct slideshow of the images in the set -this was completely unintentional on my part (but was quite a pleasing effect had the content not been so unpleasant).

Sorry, I hadn't set out to display these images directly on Safaritalk.
I've since edited it to create a link tab only.

If indeed the SCI score indicated of 69 is correct, then the animal was taken in March 1969 near the Tana River in Kenya. I happen to have the SCI record of trophy hirolas. The last legally hunted hirola was indeed taken in 1977 before the hunting ban in Kenya.
