Voi Unit  April   8, 2013 First thing in the morning Lesanju, Sinya, Lempaute and Wasessa ran to Shimba’s enclosure to check on him. They fondled him and rumbled reassuringly as they concentrated on the injuries to his ears and neck, and other deep bites around his back and legs. The elephants were fearful about leaving the Stockade compound today, after yesterday’s experience, but the Keepers escorted them to feed nearby, Lesanju insisting on passing by Shimba’s enclosure to wish him well as they headed out. The orphans returned to the Stockades to quench their thirst and for the babies to get their milk but then fed around the Malaika House for the remainder of the day. Meanwhile, Emsaya remained reluctant to return during a second attempt to try and get her back by calling her from the wild herd and showing her a bottle of milk.
