Shortly before 9 a.m. 4 wild dogs showed up for a drink at the Stockade water trough. On the way to mud wallow, the junior group was joined by Galana, Meibai, Sidai, Nasalot, Lualeni, Sunyei and Naserian. At mud bath, the juniors had their milk, then later joined the ex orphans in wallowing. Soon after mud bath, Galana led the entire herd to the browsing field. The two groups browsed together up to four o’clock in the evening when they parted, Galana taking her group to an undisclosed location while the babies started browsing their way back to the Stockades.
