Stroppie 1970

Author: Unknown
Year: 1970
Description: This female rhino, estimated to have been born in October 1970, came in in a terrible state, debilitated, loaded with blood parasites that cause Babesia and Trypanosomiasis, and suffering from pneumonia as well. Her mother was a victim of the terrible drought of 1970 which also provided the natural cull of an over-population of elephant. For almost a month Stroppie could hardly even stand, and she owes her life to Drs. Harthoorn, a husband and wife team who managed to pull her through this early ordeal. She grew up to become one of the famous early orphans of Tsavo, her Nursery companion a young zebra stallion called "Punda".
