Comments / pictures

Karha was handreared.

On the morning of 19.12.95 parturition started and the veterinary personnel were alerted at 4.40 a.m. Due to the speed of the parturition, the keeping staff had no time in which to safely chain and rope Thai , as per the protocol during the 'false' parturition signs of 2.10.95. Birth of a full term, female calf, "Karha" occurred at 4.56 a.m. Thai yet again became extremely aggressive towards her calf, but fortunately the calf was retrieved by the keeping staff after Thai had kicked it with her hind feet, causing it to slide under the bars into the adjacent pen, where the staff pulled it to safety. Due to Thai's persistent, aggressive behaviour, it was deemed impossible to reintroduce the calf back to her. The long and dedicated round the clock process of hand-rearing by the keeping staff was about to begin.
