"The largest female, the matriarch, was called Annabelle"

1973: During that period two new calves were born: Annabelle and Alyce both had calves in early 1973. Unfortunately, tragedy. soon struck the AA family. On October 1, 1974 Harvey made a visit to the Park and was told by the rangers that at the edge of the Ol Tukai Orok woodland there was a freshly dead elephant who had been speared by Maasai warriors. He found the carcass and discovered that it was Annabelle.

1975: Alison and other female calves took care of Annabelle’s calf, who was nearly two years old when her mother was killed, but she was not getting any milk. She hung on for several months, but she died sometime in the first months of 1975.
