(I have known Dr. Jacob Longo for probably eight years.)
He is well known in this area of Kenya for his expertise regarding game capture and game management. He is an American and studied veterinary medicine at Texas A&M University. Yes, another Texan. He has a small and large animal vet hospital on the south edge of town. I have consulted with him many times. About two years ago, I took he and his brother (visiting from Texas) on a big-five hunt in the same area where we are heading. I definitely need his advice as to the proper dosage of tranquilizer to quickly put these cats in a deep sleep. I’m mostly concerned that we have the quantity accurate for the large male. Too much drugs can be harmful or fatal to the lions. Too little sedation, and the event could be harmful or fatal to us. You get the picture. I trust Jacob Longo. We regard each other as friends.
