Assamo: 4-17 May 2013
Assamo's movements during 4-17 May 2013
Though Assamo hasn't moved very far during this time period, those movements are still interesting... At least to me they are. Assamo spent most of this time near permanent/semi-permanent settlements (when I zoom in on Google Earth there are cement buildings and fenced compounds). These settlements are located on two arms of a large wadi system, so most of Assamo's locations fall within a circle of about 30 km. He did make some forays out to the NE (16 May) near Egahlou, to the West (5 May) near Airolaf and even to Tadjoura (6 May). We have not recorded him re-visiting the site where he was caught. That could be because locations are determined at intervals throughout the day, and so he could have visited and we missed it. Of course, it could also be that he just hasn't gone back to the Tadjoura abattoir.
