Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ORWA)
3/31/2015 - Kanjoro was the first one to leave the stockade. Laragai waited until the keepers started distributing the lucerne, then instead of using the gate to access the place where they feed on lucerne, Laragai used a shortcut. she knelt down and went under the fence. The keepers only knew she had gone under the fence when they heard the wires clicking. Laragai then pretended to be busy going round picking the lucerne. Unfortunately she happened to bump on Kanjoro. Kanjoro was upset by Laragai and decided to teach her a lesson by turning to push her. Before he could turn, Laragai had sensed danger and she was long gone. As they wandered away from their night stockades to face the day Orwa knelt down with his fore legs and dug at the damp soil using his tusks. Vuria played with Teleki as Garzi stood aside and watched the two and their pushing game.
