They brought their full force. Most of the members of the Greater-Pond-District Camera Trap Policing Unit was present, only some of the junior officers had to sit this one out.
They even brought in some of the high ranking generals. A "Lavender" Helmeted Guineafowl was conducting patrols in front of the Cuddeback for most of the week.
When the Tygerberg Secret Police gets serious they operate with an iron fist. They made sure that not a single other species was photographed at the primary monitoring site. They (and only they) where on all of the photos the entire week.
There where no night time photos from the Cuddeback. I'm sure they must have roosted just behind the camera. At night they made sure that the Bushnell (which was close by) was under watch by heavily armored and seemingly well trained civilian volunteers.
My other Bushnell was hidden away in a different part of the reserve and snapped a picture of a Caracal passing by. Overall the police force had the entire hill on high alert. Now that I think about it some Hadedas where giving me a lot of grief just before I ran into the the police squad. (Those familiar with Hadedas will know that they have a really loud call and three of them where shouting out the alarm as I walked past...)
I have a bad record with these particular officers in the Greater-Pond-District, so I'll try and move the Cuddeback before I get into even more trouble with the law - I already moved the Bushnell.
(Those of you wondering how I know that the senior officer is a "Lavender" Helmetted Guineafowl can check out a color key some strange people in Texas USA developed over here. I wonder what the secret police is doing in the USA?)
