Lady has now seen the other girls – Maia, Ramba, and Rana.
Lady seems happy to see them at a distance, but isn’t quite ready to officially meet them. Rana, who is quickly becoming the official welcoming committee, let out some very loud (maybe too loud) trumpets when she saw Lady, who quickly walked away at the noise. There are no signs of fear, or aggression, it just seems Lady doesn’t quite know what to make of other elephants yet – which is ok.
She has had a lot of changes the past few days, so her wanting emotional and physical space to process everything is understandable. She will have as much time as she needs to become more comfortable and joining the herd can happen at her own pace. As the sanctuary is so large, there is plenty of room for Lady to have the space she needs.
Overall, Lady is doing wonderful. You can see Rana, Ramba, and Lady in this video. Maia is off doing her own thing this morning.
The video ends abruptly and cuts out a few times due to intermittent power at the barn, we appreciate your patience!
