Quick live with Bambi before they begin driving again. She is sleepy but doing well. Last night she rested well once they stopped. The team hopes to arrive late afternoon today if all goes well.
Scott also addresses a story that Bambi knows one of the other girls. The reality is we always receive numerous stories about the elephants knowing another elephant, but none with any factual supportive information. When Rana was coming, someone who said they were from the circus said that Rana had spent time with Maia and Guida, and they didn’t get along because Rana bit the end of Maia’s tail off. This is something we deal with every rescue. So please don’t give any merit to these stories and don’t put that sort of expectation on Bambi. Just let everything unfold as it does, and support her just for that.
Power is out, but we hope to have the generators set up for her arrival if it does not return. Thanks for being here and following along and making this possible. Visit her Rescue Page for additional information, photos, and map

Thank you, Nancy, thanks to all commenting. Without all of YOU this 2nd chance for Bambi, and all the others, wouldn’t be possible. Our deepest gratitude. ❤️

Very safe trip for the final miles. ???

Just getting Bambi to a safe sanctuary is enough for now. Friendships might develop among the girls but regardless our sweet Bambi has places to go and things to do at ESB

Seguro que las chicas del Santuario deben percibir que pasa algo en el aire…??????????

A glorious day for this girl, and every single person that has worked to help her gain her deserved freedom. I am watching and listening to see her first steps into the joy of sanctuary life.?♥️

Safe journey for the last leg all, thank you so much for finding this time to let us be part of Bambi’s very special relocation time. It’s always good to hear you talking Scott and thank you for being up front and letting us know about the expectations on Bambi and to just let her be her beautiful self, whatever and whoever that may be ❤️
Thank you everyone at the Sanctuary ? for keeping the girls happy and looked after. I cannot wait to see Bambi arrive, her first steps into this wonderful new life and the reaction of the rest of her new family ??????

We all know these elephants are Scott’s babies; when he called Bambi “Pumpkin”.
Love you, Scott!❤️? Ring the bell to heaven, because that is your journey!!???
Rosie P saysSeptember 26, 2020 at 11:47 am
I am so excited that the journey is nearing its end. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing Bambi to sanctuary. She has had, like many captive elephants, a miserable, abusive life. Now she will know freedom. This is really the beginning of her journey, she will now begin to find herself. Bless you for making this happen.
Allison saysSeptember 26, 2020 at 12:55 pm
Wishing you all the best for Bambi’s arrival. I hope you get power back. I know you will make it wonderful either way. You must be so excited for your family to get home. I’m excited for you. Love to all the elephants.

And we all know there will be a big pile of lovely dirt to take her first nap in Sanctuary when she can sleep as long a she pleases then take her time exploring and eating whatever and whenever she chooses. Then that lovely bit when she realises that are other elephants around. All in her own good time.

We need to make today an International Holiday – Miss Bambi Celebration Day! She will definitely change the Gang of Girls to the positive! Oh Boy! Can’t wait to see those vids!
