Nursery Unit  January   8, 2011 Today was tragic the day that we lost precious baby Wasin. At about 4 a.m. Wasin became very weak and was unable to stand without support. We immediately inserted a Dextrose intravenous drip into her ear vein, and also administered Sulphadimidine tablets, but to no avail and she passed away that morning. The Keepers were deeply saddened just as they were when Nchan and Olkeju suddenly passed away. Wasin, having been in the Nursery for the past 3 months, was a great favourite. Her passing was also mourned deeply by Naipoki and Mutara, who had been her constant companions, Mutara comforted Naipoki, staying very close to her and constantly touching her lovingly with her trunk.
