Comments / pictures

1988: "Edgar, a son, was born in 1988."

in June 1991, Erin gave birth to a male calf. This was very poor "family planning" on her part, because her older calf Edgar, at only two years and eight months old, was too young to be weaned. As the dry season progressed and there was less and less food for a young calf to eat he suffered from malnutrition and
died in October.
