Shit Monday…

Every Monday is the day to go into all of the big cat enclosures and clean up the poo and all of the animal bones that the big cats have eaten over the past week..

Starting off in the morning with the elephants as usual cleaning and washing down the floor, Elephant food also arrived at this time, one bag at a time into the storage area.

After breakfast we started off in the Cheetahs, three girls, big four and the Tigers enclosures. Two wheelbarrows, one for bones one for poo. Also we had to wash out the water baths for all of these cats, nice time to sit down in the cold water as we are empting it…

After lunch we had to do the poo trailer…. Still haven’t beaten the record that was set. Was covered from head to toe in the animal poo, which luckily is just hay and grass.

Final thing for today was the feed of the animals, not as much meat as usual as we are awaiting a delivery, and the three lionesses get less food as they ‘may’ be taken out on the lion walk tomorrow morning (yet to be confirmed).

Still having an absolutely amazing time here, I would one 100% recommend this project to anyone who is interested! www.volunteersa.com

Thank you for reading, I will be back tomorrow with more details of this trip! :)
