10/31/2016 - Again it was Mbegu who realised that we had rescued a new baby last night and this morning she was yelling and knocking on her gate wishing to come out and greet the new arrival. When she walked out she was witnessed walking between all the babies’ pens trying to find the new one, who was still in her stable behind a closed door. Roi and Oltaiyoni followed behind her and they were all seen standing outside the new baby’s stable door, with Oltaiyoni trying to open it with her trunk and rumbling a low rumble to comfort the new arrival. The young elephant after learning of the older elephants outside started yelling loudly and this made Oltaiyoni, Roi and Mbegu react by yelling as well as they stood outside the stable. Oltaiyoni tried to knock hard on the door to get to the baby but the keepers instead tried to lead her out into the forest – though they were very unhappy with this decision and tried a few times to sneak back to the stockade compound!
