Injured Orphan Kalonge Healing Well
Isn’t it great that humans will travel so far to help a Gorilla? I know he thanks you even if he cannot say it out loud.
Dr. Eddy made the trip to Rumangabo this week to check on orphan Grauer’s gorilla Kalonge, who broke her femur when she fell from a tree in her enclosure at the Senkwekwe Center on May 12 (Read about Dr. Eddy’s initial assessment here.)Our Head DRC Vet reports that Kalonge is healing really well. She is bearing some weight on the injured leg and climbing through the treetops effortlessly. Dr. Eddy will continue to monitor her recovery in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here are some photos of Kalonge climbing through the trees!
