Nursery Unit  September   8, 2012 Orwa tried to get his own back on Ishaq-B yesterday by mounting onto her as she lay in the red soil pile. She threw him off, and hurt his leg, because this morning he is limping. Ishaq-B tried to persuade the Keepers to return her to the younger Group, where she could bully the smaller elephants, but the Keepers resisted. She behaves well during milk feeds with the Bigger Elephants, aware that Sonje is at hand to discipline her!

At 3 p.m. there was a Rescue alert, this time for a yearling calf who had wandered onto Settlement near Mt. Kenya. The baby bull arrived at the Nursery just after 6 p.m. and has a machete cut on his shoulder. He had apparently been sighted alone 3 days ago and has been named “Teleki”, the name of a valley on Mt. Kenya.


Ishaq-B and Kithaka
