Our big boys behaved during the health check except sJAC who got extremely nervous and hit the doors & bars of the sedation cage. Coco didn’t even realised he was darted – this strong boy can be very calm when in confidence.
I personaly hate all that darting and all the anxiousness it provides. Therefore, before and just at sedation time, I always do my best to sit next to my rescued orphans to make them feel ok – it seems that once they hear my voice they can go to sleep in trust. Some even give me their hands once they lose control as to keep contact with me…
Some pictures of the day:

- Dr Jean Claude checking Mwisho’s lungs

Many thanks again and again for my precious team and for the students from the local school who attended the health checks. W hope they had an interesting experience!!
