You took this in the wild?
Semi-wild. Wild oryx became extinct in Qatar in the 20th century and then they were re-introduced 10 years ago in several reserves. These ones live in the open space, roam a big territory of the reserve, but from time to time return to the feeding place. They stay away from humans but it's possible to get quite close to them if one is discreet.

A lot of animals know where they are safe.

We have a military firing range on site. The local deer know that they are safe there, nobody to chase them, large swaths of fresh mown grass, and you are not allowed to shoot them.

You mean wild as in "angry"? He looks more sleepy than angry!;)

The title of the thread has “...in the wild...” and I thought your comment implied that the presence of the gopher cage was not in the wild.
