Nursery Unit  August   30, 2017 At dawn this morning poor Maxwell was very upset when he smelt a lone male buffalo who wandered into the compound and settled right next to his gate where his water trough and lucerne pellets are kept. It is very dry in the area which means this poor buffalo came into the compound just to collect up the lucerne pellets which had fallen on the other side of the gate! Maxwell scampered about his stockade and knocked on the metal gate to try and scare the buffalo away but the buffalo did not listen and stayed to eat every bit of lucerne it could find. Maxwell had other ideas though and had to mark his stockade as his territory so he sprayed his gate and the lucerne pellets that were left with urine, prompting the buffalo to walk away. Maxwell was restless for some time and ran around but he then quieted down around when the time when the orphans were coming out of their stockades.
