2008: the wonderful Tulip, a favorite of all the AERP researchers, was not there. Her little 2006 calf had a huge gash across her forehead, which was almost certainly, a spear wound and it indicated how her mother was killed. Fortunately, the gash was healing well but how distressing
for her to lose her mother at such a young age. Coming up to two years old in March, she was staying close to Twoo, Tilly’s orphan. Poor little thing, she didn’t even have a name yet, because we name the calves when they are four years old.
