Network: Web Sites - A live killing on the Web
Monday 28 September 1998
First Jennicam, now giraffecam, leopardcam and zebracam. The online watering hole displays daily wildlife action from a game reserve in Kruger National Park, South Africa, and has recently claimed the first lion kill - a hapless buffalo - to go out live over the Net. Two webcams are employed, updated every 30 seconds. One is static, while the other is carted around by park rangers in pursuit of "suitable animal events". Viewers who stumble across one of these by themselves can capture the image and mail it back for display at the site: addicts can receive e- mail alerts when an elephant is about to give birth or a couple of particularly endearing wildebeest decide it is time for a drink. A fascinating site where the animals are seen in the wild, on their own terms, though true- to-the-authentic safari experience, nothing happens much of the time.
