Bambi Misses Her Friends

Bambi in tall grassA few days ago, the five girls – Maia, Mara, Bambi, Rana, and Guillermina – shifted from Yard 5 into Yard 4. Rana and Mara stuck together and stayed close to the fence separating the two yards, while Bambi and Guillermina moved deeper into Yard 4. 

Early in that afternoon, Bambi appeared to start missing Rana and Mara. She was trumpeting and rumbling to call them, but they were not quick to respond. The two were clearly doing their own thing, on their own time. Bambi stayed close with Guille – though she still called to her friends periodically. Eventually, Mara and Rana did show up. Bambi ran to them when they appeared, excited to be reunited with her two friends again. There was a small party when the three “Powerpuff Girls” came together again. The four elephants spent the afternoon together grazing, though Guille seemed interested in wandering a bit. She eventually found Maia and the two of them stood side-by-side for a good while.

    Is Lady still too mentally/ emotionally damaged to be around the other elephants? Does she ever have any communication with her follow GSE residents ?

      Lady is not comfortable sharing space with the other elephants, especially now that her feet and legs are more compromised than ever. However, she does communicate with them when they are near her. She’ll sometimes join in when they are conversing or having parties.
