Shira returns to Voi
Meanwhile, having browsed during the afternoon in amongst the Voi Keeper Dependent group, she walked back with them and their Keepers to the Voi Stockades in the late evening, and immediately went back into her old Stockade just as though she had never left, tucking into the cut Grewia browse that is elephant food.. And so, after two years as living as a wild elephant, Orphan Shira from the Amboseli population of wild elephants, who was orphaned when she became trapped down the same Meerschaum well at a place called Sinya at the foot of towering Mt. Kilmanjaro the self same well that had orphaned Sinya, Kibo and Mawenzi - has chosen to return to the fold. We are delighted that she is whole and well.
