    THE FUNRAISER HAS ENDED.



    As many are aware Bossie was seriously wounded by a buffalo this morning (see: https://www.africahunting.com/threads/bossie-mostert-hurt-by-a-wounded-buffalo-today.49009/).

    As @Wheels so eloquently put it over the last couple of years Bossie,
    -lost his home and the contents to a tornado and rain.
    -wife died.
    -raising a pre-teen boy by himself.
    -worked at keeping a business going through all of this.
    -now, been hit and gored by a buffalo. Not sure how he is going to deal with the medical expenses or keep business going for the next undetermined amount of time, all at the start of the season.
    Bossie was gored in the leg and abdomen, broke several ribs, and has all the injuries that go along with that. It will be a tough road for him coming up and I’m sure he would really appreciate any and all help we can give him.

    If you would like to make a financial donation to help Bossie we have set up a PayPal account to do so (thank you so much for this @BWH).
    Details
    PayPal :
    xxxxxxxxxx
    List name and AH handle
    Please put “Bossie donation”

    Ever little bit will help and be much appreciated, Thank you

    FYI.... Bossie is in surgery at the moment. The greatest risk is "infection". Vitals were missed. However, he was very much gored in the abdomen by a wild animal, Cape Buffalo at that.... in the bush. I will keep the thread apprised as I learn. As I am staying in constant contact with our friend & his partner PH during this time.

    Thank you all.

    Yes, a few have asked.... If you prefer to mail a check that is fine, PM me and I will provide you with the shipping address.

    I will confirm upon receipt.

    Thank you for your generosity.

    UPDATE:

    Bossie is out of surgery. Docs say it went well.... vitals stayed strong throughout the procedure. They got him all cleaned up & patched up. He is in Recovery now. I know all prayers & donations are very much appreciated.

    That's really good news he's recovering well. Man this poor guy what he has been thru lately. As one who knows life can certainly be tough. Godspeed Bossie.

    Bossie has to be feeling like Job by now...except Job didn't get gored by a buff.

    God really is on your side brother....this has a higher purpose that we just don't see yet.
