Voi Unit  May   31, 2013 Emily’s group was absent today, which pleased Lesanju because she had her family all to herself! Lempaute then led the Orphans half way up Mazinga Hill to browse where a light shower anchored them until the milk dependent babies heard the tractor and ran down to get their milk, leaving the bigger elephants up the hill. An altercation between Layoni and Dabassa followed when Layoni tried to snatch Dabassa’s share. Afterwards the small orphans returned to join their peers up the hill.

Other News:- Shimba’s wounds are almost healed now, although his one earhole seems to have closed, which is a worry and something that may need surgical intervention later. He has lost some condition during his long painful convalescence but is enjoying milk and supplements as well as cut browse to build him up again. Meanwhile he enjoys the close companionship of little Panda, with whom he has formed a close bond of friendship. The two browse together in the fenceline and around the Stockades rather than join the others who venture further afield on a daily basis.
