Voi Unit  May   18, 2013 All the Juniors underwent a de-worming today, parasites having been spotted in their dung the previous day. After the Orphans had left, Shimba and Panda were browsing around the compound when the Ex Orphans began appearing, initially Edie and her baby, Ella, who rushed forward to greet the two Juniors. Edie’s baby Ella charged the nearby Keeper who was documenting the encounter but when the Keeper failed to budge, she gave up and returned to her mother. Ex Orphans Thoma, Seraa and Mweya were next to arrive, who also greeted Shimba and Panda warmly before joining Big Boys Lolokwe and Irima who were busy at the Copra leftovers. Sweet Sally then arrived accompanied by a very nervous wild boyfriend, who kept his distance and paced impatiently up and down waiting for for Sally to rejoin him, but she was in no hurry and took her time! The wild bull was visibly surprised to see how the Ex Orphans reacted to the human Keepers! Last to arrive were Emily, Eve, Laikipia and Ndara who took a drink before all then headed out again.
