Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for BARSILINGA)
3/26/2015 - At 6.30am it was still dark and drizzling and no one was keen to leave the stockades. However, the older ones have to browse and all the elephants must get used to being out in such conditions as they grow up. Mwashoti pushed at the gate as he watched the others going out into the park, he would love to join them but his foot is too badly injured and would be too painful for him to walk very far. Lentili and Rorogoi were up to their old tricks, this time attempting to bully Alamaya. Suswa drove them away, but it was not long until Sokotei moved in to push her around. Barsilinga and Nelion saw what was happening and quickly put a stop to it. Barsilinga can be very protective and caring of new arrivals and these two with their lovely nature are very respected by the others so when they put a stop to things they are listened to.
