Nursery Unit  January   3, 2012 Having emerged from their Night Stockades, the orphans headed out into the forest, Kithaka leading sandwiched between Mutara and Shukuru. As usual Orwa, who is still slower than the others, brings up the rear with the Keepers. On the way Kainuk and Sities decided to settle an old score in a Pushing Bout when, by mistake, Kainuk hit Kilabasi, which did not go down at all well. Kilabasi pushed Kainuk so hard that she fell to the ground screaming. The Keepers rushed to her rescue and punished Kilabasi by expelling her from the herd for an hour. Kilabasi complained from a distance until she was welcome back into the fold, when everyone settled down again. Little Kithaka joined Mutara, trying to copy her feeding on grass.
