That's very sad Granny poor elephant. It's so upsetting when you get to know these animals and what they've been through. Me I tend to shy away from stuff like this as I know it would put me on a downer especially the cruelty. Stupid idiots who believe milking the poor bears etc is powerful medicine and same with elephants tusks and rhinos being wiped out just for these stupid beliefs. Makes me so angry!!!
The bear video was lovely they look so happy so it's a good job there is people and organisations helping these poor animals. I enjoy watching the Katmai bears as at least they live how they should with nobody out to kill them as long as they stay in the reserve. There is sadness with them but it's nature and fights between themselves but on the whole they seem happy and well fed there.

Not having dropped in on the Katmai bears for quite a long time now, I'm probably missing quite a lot at the moment . Coming out of hibernation for another feast at some point, exactly how they should be allowed to live their lives. Has Otis appeared again yet ? I'm glad you are still enjoying them and you probably know all their names by now. Do you take part in the discussions and chat ?

The other thing that's a tragedy atm, is the Four Paws rescue of 40 zoo animals from Rafah Zoo ,Gaza. The team was all set to go in on Sunday, but due to the now intensifying military actions of Israel (again) it's too dangerous for them.
At least one explosion went off in Rafah last night, I so hope it wasn't close to the animals. They are in bad enough shape as it is.

The bears are not about yet , got to wait awhile longer. It will be interesting to see who comes back and who has cubs , they are so cute .. we all hope Otis comes back this year but he is getting old and you could definitely see a slowness in him last year. I really enjoy watching them and reading chat I sometimes join in but not a lot. They all know the bears so well so it's great that you find out exactly who you are watching. Some of them are real characters make you laugh but then you get the grumps who want to be top bear and fight. They all have nicknames given by the chatters but the rangers give them numbers. As I say it's nice to see them and quite a privilege to watch them thanks to Explore.

I doubt I would ever remember all the names of the those bears, Cools. laugh


Who remembers the rescue of 33 lions from Columbia and Peru a few years ago. They went to Emoya BIg Cat Sanctuary in Africa.
Since then, due to various problems, ADI have found their own sanctuary in Africa and have transferred the lions to their own sanctuary in the last few weeks.

OJ and Iron were just two of those lions rescued.

The first picture was at the time of rescue and the second one is them today. What a transformation !

And now we have Kaavan. The latest maajor rescue of a 10.5 ft elephant. Known as the lonliest elephant in the world .
Re-homed from the hell hole of a zoo in Pakistan to Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary.

Fantastic place, and Kaavan is making himself feel very much at home. He's already acheived in breaking the rope that his tyre was hanging with, (been replaced) knocked a small tree down (unintentionally and i'f you've never seen a tree, wht would you do with it) and he's flirting with the girls next door.
There is evidence that he is lying down to sleep at night against his sand bank and he's loving to take dust baths and mud baths.
How's that for just one week out of solitary ? I'd say not bad at all .
They are in the process of making n even bigger enclosure and eventually he will be allowed into the forest with the other elephants . He needs some medical attention before all that though.

His eyes are like babies eyes, all innocent and loving.

This was just after one day in the sanctuary after a long tiring journey.





Before his rescue.
