Restore deleted encounter not working

In which Wildbook did the issue occur? ACW

What operating system were you using? Win 10

What web browser were you using? latest chrome

What is your role on the site? Admin

What happened?
A user accidentally deleted an encounter that she intended to keep. She sent me the encounter # and I used that to try to restore the encounter via the functionality on the Library Administration page.
I entered the encounter #8ac34232-3136-474f-953c-bb1a7bda1044 into the box as follows and clicked Restore:

The next page displayed this “Success” message:

But when I clicked on the encounter link in the Success message, I got this:

So unless I’m doing it wrong, which is always possible, I don’t think the “Restore deleted encounter” functionality is working correctly.

What did you expect to happen?
For the deleted encounter to be restored and accessible.

What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?

Here’s another deleted encounter # that you can use to reproduce the issue:

FYI on context - I haven’t had much need before now to use this functionality however a user has just started working through a batch of 400 wild dog sightings, with almost 15k encounters. Their first step is reviewing, adding and deleting encounters based on the accuracy and completeness of the annotations on each image. So I expect I’ll use this more often going forward, although hopefully not too much.
