Voi Unit  November   14, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day with Layoni and Dabassa running in to join the stockade dependant orphan elephants, who had finished their morning milk bottle, for some range cube and the Lucerne grass pellet feeding. There was some brief dust bathing games at the stockade compound with Dabassa engaging Panda in a strength testing and pushing game. Panda noticed that they had been left behind by the others who were making their way towards the browsing grounds and ran to join them.

Dabassa and Layoni followed them for a while before leaving the juniors browsing on the northern side of Msinga Hill while they went to have a drink from the stockade water trough after which they had a wrestling match before leaving for the browsing grounds.

At 8am, the orphan elephant that was rescued on the 11th (unnamed) collapsed once again and the necessary drips and medications were administered. Sadly, despite all the teams efforts, the orphan died in the afternoon.


Dabassa left engaging Panda
