Nursery Unit  August   28, 2013 Matopeh woke up still extremely aggressive towards humans, despite having taken his milk throughout the night through the separating partition between his and Tundani’s stable. Tundani rumbled to him throughout the night, trying to calm him, but by morning he had still not been convinced that he should be friendly towards humans! At the 9 a.m. milk feed he received a visit from Kihari, Naipoki and Ishaq-B who came into Tundani’s Night Stable, extending their trunks to greet him, but the presence with them of the Keepers proved a deterrent. He did not want to know!

After the Public Viewing hour, one of the long-term resident wild (but tame) warthogs, given the name “Pembe” (meaning tusk) turned up walking only on her knees, one foreleg swollen. She was ushered into Solio’s Stockade, sedated, and an X-Ray taken of the damaged leg, which revealed no break, but just a sprain. Having been given an anti-inflammatory and a painkiller, Pembe spent the night in the Stockade, and was able to walk the next morning, when she was escorted back to the KWS Staff Canteen and the rest of her family.


Pembe has a X-ray
