Baby Spotted Genet

Baby Spotted Genet

Observation - Baby Spotted Genet - UK and Ireland. Description: This tiny baby spotted genet was found in the heart of a big cycas I was planting on a verge in Khyber Rock. He was very weak and dehydrated so I phoned around and got in touch with Wildlife in Crisis who have a permit to rehabilitate and care for genets.

This tiny baby spotted genet was found in the heart of a big cycas I was planting on a verge in Khyber Rock. He was very weak and dehydrated so I phoned around and got in touch with Wildlife in Crisis who have a permit to rehabilitate and care for genets. Vanessa came and collected the little one. He was kept for a short while, along with another slight older baby genet that had been found in another area, and then they were released into the wild together. I was shocked to find a genet in such a built up area but the Johannesburg Country Club and golf course is very close by and I had heard rumours that a mother genet had recently been killed by dogs in the area.
