7/25/2014 - 34 wild elephants and 36 ex-orphans reported for water in the morning. Amongst the wild elephants, there were two wild babies. One of the wild babies joined the juniors in feeding on Lucerne and even started a pushing game with Orwa. Orwa pushed the baby so hard that the baby screamed. Luckily Sidai and Lenana came to rescue the baby and escorted it back to it's mother. Later the juniors left for browsing and settled to browse at the Kanziku area. At mud bath time, the weather was chilly so the orphans only took water and milk then returned back to the browsing field. The orphans had no time to waste given that it is so dry and they concentrated on browsing throughout. In the evening ten wild bulls showed up for water and soon after the orphans returned back to the stockade. Poor Ziwa has been looking dull and sleepy so he was given a dose of antibiotics.
