Ithumba Unit  August   13, 2017 The Ex Orphans led by Yatta were at the stockade compound when the orphans were let out. Kibo walked over to Dupotto and tried to sniff at her before heading to the stockade to check whether there were any leftovers. Four wild dogs appeared from the eastern side of the stockade coming for water, but were denied from doing so by the elephants. The wild dogs carried on with their journey heading towards mud bath where hopefully they managed to have water without any interference. Dupotto rolled on the ground again and soon was surrounded by Mutara’s group who were curious to find out who Dupotto was and where she had come from. They placed their trunks on her back and once they were satisfied Dupotto was part of them, the group allowed her to continue having fun. Garzi briefly engaged Lemoyian in a pushing game that saw him surrender very quickly. Boromoko had a word with Kainuk before following his friends who were now making their way to the browsing field.

Back out in the bush Boromoko tackled Lemoyian, a game that went on for quite some time. At mud bath time, only ten wild bulls were present. Later Yatta and her group showed up and headed south of mud bath after having enough water. Naseku, Garzi, Galla, Wanjala and Ukame had some time off from feeding to participate in a soil dusting exercise. Kamok took Dupotto under a tree with good shade to avoid the scorching sun and resumed browsing when it was cooler.
