Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for OLMEG)
2/4/2003 - Mweiga tripped over Thoma's legs and fell onto her knees. All the others rushed to her rescue to lift her back up, but she managed alone. At 6.30 a.m. all the orphans raised their trunks and soon afterwards a wild Bull of about 15 joined them. They all seemed very friendly towards him and he spent the next three hours amongst our group. (Could this have been Olmeg or Taru? The Keepers currently with the orphans would not know these ex orphans, but by the behaviour of Emily and Aitong, we suspect that the visiting bull was known to them. Both Olmeg and Taru would now be 15 years old). In the evening, having noticed worms in the stools, all the orphans were de-wormed.
