Nursery Unit  September   15, 2010 Having taken their 9 a.m. milk feed out in the bush, the orphans began to move further afield until Suguta, Tumaren, Olare and Kibo detected the presence of some buffalo in their path. The older orphans charged about, kicking bushes and trumpeting, backed up by the Keepers, until the buffaloes ran away. This encounter left the orphans in a high state of nervousness, prompting them to browse close to the Keepers for the rest of the day.

Maalim’s condition has deteriorated again, so he has been on a long course of injectible Enrofloxacine along with a Bronchial dilator. His respiratory problem has been very persistent and a source of grave concern, compounded by the fact that he was born so premature and is therefore more prone than usual to respiratory problems. The injections have left him very lame as well so the Keepers have been rubbing his rump with Reparel Gel and Arnica Cream to try and bring some relief.
