Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ISHANGA)
2/3/2014 - The orphans left the stockade in the morning. After feeding on Lucerne, they split into two groups. Ishanga left with Suguta and her group while the milk dependent group remained with the keepers. At the mud bath, Mshale who had not been seen since last year, showed up. Mshale was weak and walking very slowly. On close inspection it was noticed that he had two wounds, one on the shoulder and another on the neck. This is the fourth time of Mshale has shown up with injuries inflicted by poachers. The vet was contacted and at around four o’clock, he was darted and treated. After treatment, we had to use a tractor to help him back to his feet.
