The days are somewhat uneventful, which is a good thing. Lady continues to hang out in her crate even when most of her food is in the yard or her barn. Today they closed the gate behind her for a half hour and she was stellar- no banging, no stress, just her being mellow and eating her grass.
In this video Scott touches on the intelligence of elephants and how it is often dismissed in captivity, along with letting go of expectations and allowing them to simply be who they are.
Plans are still to leave tomorrow morning as long as Lady agrees. Her camera will be mounted, the doors will be closed, her crate lifted onto a truck, and Lady will start her drive to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil.
