Wildlife SOS

Luna had her first shower today. We hope she loves them because she will get one everyday now!
After the night's long and tough journey, our keepers gave Luna a refreshing bath. This not only helped her ease up a little, but it also gave our team a chance to clear off the folds of her skin of infectious dirt before we start the treatment of her wounds.

I think they may be referring to the 'Field of Dreams' where the elephants go and wander , doing what elephants do best. I love the name .

Wildlife SOS

Update on #Luna: After the treatment sessions today, Luna needed a break. So, she decided to walk towards the field and started playing with dust and leaves. In no time, she was totally covered in mud and continued playing for hours. We saw her so happy for the first time and to us, it looked like she is celebrating her freedom .

Not a rescue, but what did they do to us ? We get life for killing a human, not much difference really.

You're more likely to get life for stealing money than killing a human, perhaps that is what is wrong with society.

Right ! However, humans killing a relative as in gorilla, goes unreported.

Since this last post, Luna has had various treatments, and is still trying to overcome 50yrs of slavery.

Various posts from.. Wildlife SOS

Luna's body was not only covered in scars from the use of bull-hook much too frequently, it was also marked by prominent wounds that were still oozing with pus. Our veterinarians are now applying a combination of antiseptic and antibiotic ointment to soothe her wounds and avoid further infection.

As a result of lack of proper nutrition and care since Luna was a calf, she did not receive the critical care that she needed. This led to the development of a deformity in her hind legs which curve inwards and are extremely weak. There are several skin lesions on her body due to friction with the ground as she is often unable to get up for long periods. She also has an ulcer on the right hip side which is causing her pain. Our vets are observing her day and night and are chalking out a detailed medical routine for her

Recently, there has been a sudden drop in mercury due to which the mornings have become colder and foggier. The afternoons are warm and cosy. We are trying to keep her warm and comfortable as cold can aggravate pain in her joints. A bonfire is also lit throughout the night at a safe distance from her enclosure to keep her snug.

There are many reasons why Luna has been struggling to stand. Here is photo showing one of the issues. You can see the bottom of one of her feet. The veterinarian is removing pebbles and other foreign objects that have been embedded in her foot. Who knows how long she has had these in there. It's hard to imagine the pain it has caused her. There is more that still needs to come out.

Thanks lincle . At least someone appreciates the transformation to the lives of these animals.

FRIDAY FUN... start here and work down.. Enjoy

Published on 1 Jul 2015

Torn from his mother by traffickers and rescued as a traumatised cub in a remote district of Vietnam by Animals Asia – sun bear Goldie is finally learning how to play and explore. Goldie was just six months old when he was rescued in April this year. He recently completed a quarantine period at the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre and is now growing in confidence as he adjusts to his new-found freedom.

Experts are amazed at the intelligence of this little Sun bear.

Wonderful news, obviously Aurora is making up for lost time.

Update :
There is no stopping Aurora now!

After 15 years of the most cruel captivity, Aurora was rescued in December last year.

She stepped out on grass a few weeks ago for the first time since she was a cub, and now she's made her first ever friends.

This brave, calm, sweet bear is now living with the Miomojo bears: Layla, Sassy, Annemarie, Goldie and Murphy. And early signs are the group are getting along really well! What a superstar Aurora is. Her spirit is shining so brightly.

Who remembers Sky.. 14 ys in solitary confinement from being a cub ? Rescued in Sept 2017 ..




It was a long road for Sky to adapt and she struggled, but she was given all the time she needed. Today she has found her courage and made friends with Le BON.. ( another rescued bear last August, and sponsored by Simon Le Bon )
.



Happy Sunday

Latest update on Luna.. cry

Our team of vets and care givers have been with Luna all night long. She has been receiving intravenous fluid therapy since last night. The intravenous fluids administered to her via drip is a carefully calibrated mixture of electrolytes and B-complex solution. We are pleased to report that Luna has slowly started to eat. She’s just now snacking on some juicy cucumbers and watermelon. We are making sure she stays well hydrated and have kept large buckets full of fresh cool water right next to her that she has been drinking intermittently.
Luna has been given painkillers to help her deal with the pain in her hind leg. She is too weak to get up but we are trying our level best to help her regain strength. Please send her prayers and keep her in your thoughts. We will keep you posted.

.....and while we wait for some good news about Luna, there is also a Four Paws Rescue happening right now , in Gaza. Animals from Rafa Zoo, approx. 40 of them, so a massive task. Good Luck to Four Paws.

Whilst we wait, here is a jolly little video to brighten our spirits. Made for International Happiness Day this week, and it makes me joyful hope it does for you too.

Update on Luna.

This morning Wildlife SOS gave an update on little Luna. I shall not copy it here as it had me in floods of tears. She no longer has any strength in her back legs. They said she was peaceful and not in pain, but Luna may not be with them for much longer.

I shall leave that as my final update on her .
