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.
