Finally Fine

At last there was a good enough day on Thursday for me to go to the zoo for the first time in ages.

Melati and JaeJae are finally able to be reunited because the cubs are two-years-old and have gone to their new homes. Apart from one swipe that I didn't catch (Melati on JaeJae) they didn't seem all that interested.

Some of the hunting dog puppies seemed to be interested in the people watching them from the canal towpath.

They moved the cubs somewhere else? To another zoo? I wonder if JaeJae and Melati miss them.

JoJo, I think they were glad to see the back of them! JaeJae had been on his own for most of the time they were with mum, for their safety. He missed Melati. The boys were separated off last year as they approached 2 so as to both give Melati a break, and to avoid mating with their sister. She remained with mum. They are all at other zoos to start their own breeding programmes, which was always the intention. The zoo holds the Sumatran tiger stud book, so they had their pick of placements.
