Today Lady allowed for the gates to be closed behind her. The first time her caregiver was giving her food rewards, the next time Lady only had grass in the container. She was very calm and quiet. We also passed the support strap under her through the doors to see how cooperative she would be. This is just in case she pulls the strap down but then needs it again later on. She was good, but the second time she showed a little bit of frustration. The positive thing about that was she didn’t lash out at the humans around her, she simply put her trunk up over the bars and showed her emotion in other ways.
Tomorrow will be more of the same and as of now, the plan is still to leave early on Monday.
