This video shows Ingo gently working with Guillermina, getting her used to hearing unexpected noises while also staying relaxed in the crate. In order to prepare an elephant for transport, we do our best to simulate sounds, banging, and other unfamiliar sensations they might experience as their crates are closed, loaded, and strapped down to the trucks and, ultimately, driving down a roadway.
Here you can see Ingo casually hanging out, feeding Guillermina while she is in her crate, and making several different types of noises. Trish is on the opposite side, clanging and clattering away. You can see that, as Guillermina eats, Ingo bangs on the crate with his foot, jangles the locks, drums on a bucket, and generally makes a variety of noises. Guillermina doesn’t seem affected in any way, so we will continue down the path towards rescue.
