Notice: Undefined index: isbn in /customers/6/2/a/elephant.se/httpd.www/database2.php on line 1540 Sadly Balguda’s condition declined more rapidly in recent weeks resulting in him collapsing. Sadly by this stage there was nothing we could do and with his favourite keeper keeping a constant vigil by his side, letting him know he was loved and offering what comfort he could, Balguda finally passed away.
