    Eastern Transvaal, Africa.

    Nice footage of Zebras. Zebras have to be marked so that game wardens can monitor their movements. One of the zebras is knocked out with an anaesthetic dart fired from a crossbow. We see one of the zebras wavering then lying on the ground. The zebra will be fitted with an identifying collar then an antidote to the anaesthetic will be injected. Poor thing! Various shots of the woozy zebra having a red collar applied. He then trots off into the Veld. The two game wardens smile and nod, pleased with their handiwork. We are told that because the Zebras are hunted, keeping the herds under surveillance will help the game warden to protect them. Narrator states that many species face extinction because of the hunters' guns.

    Cuts exist - see other record.
