Voi Unit  August   25, 2017 The morning was cloudy with light rain sprinkles torching the ground as the stockade dependant orphans assembled for their milk bottle after which they proceeded for Lucerne pellets, dairy cubes and copra cake. Lesanju, Layoni and Dabassa came and joined them for the supplements.
After feeding, Mashariki, Lentili and Mudanda went to properly greet Lempaute and they all touched trunks.

When all the greeting was done with the group moved towards the browsing grounds with Kenia’s herd separating themselves from the three ex-orphans who were busy having a drink of water.
Later in the evening, the orphan lion cub that was fed on meat by the trust on 8th was seen and had to be taken to the stockades for treatment by the vet unit. It appeared that he had been attacked by a buffalo and had been injured. Sadly the lion cub did not survive the night.
