When he the creatures were under the impacts of the medication we were motioned to surround them and tenderly move them into the level bed truck we used to move them to their new area.
Once at the new area we were allowed the chance to immunize the creatures against ailments basic to their breed. I was the fortunate one picked to give the shot to bring the Oryx out of the anesthesia back to full capacity and my significant other was so charmed in what I was doing he didn’t get an image.
