Shida didnít show up today at 11 a.m. for the mudbath hour, as usual. As the Keepers were taking their lunch out in the bush, suddenly Olare accompanied by Kalama came running to the Keepers, with their trunks up and ears out. At first the Keepers thought the two were just playing, but in fact they were trying to communicate that something was amiss! The Keepers went to investigate and came across Shida attempting to play with the elephants, chasing them around! The Keepers had difficulty controlling Shida, who was in a playful mood, and had to take the elephants in another direction to lose him!
