Čuvari u ovom rezervatu nose posebna odela kako bi se zbližili sa siročetom zebre

Potresna priča o ovom ždrepcu dotakla je srca ljudi širom planete

  • 1

Priroda ponekad zna da bude veoma okrutna, a takav je i primer jednog ždrebeta zebre, čiju mamu je usmrtio čopor lavova. Reč je o malenom Diriji, koji se sada nalazi u rezervatu za životinje ''Sheldrick Wildlife Trust''. Čuvari rezervata su nedavno podelili ovu potresnu priču putem svojih društvenih mreža i time zaokupili pažnju ljudi širom sveta.

Maleni Dirija je samo igrom slučaja uspeo da i sam izbegne lavlje čeljusti. Kada su se lavovi ustremili na njegovu majku, mališan se instinktivno sakrio među kozama koje su meštani izveli na ispašu. Oni su bili svedoci ovog nemilosrdnog prizora, pa su se smilovali na Diriju i odveli ga lokalnim čuvarima nacionalnog parka, koji su ga, potom, prosledili ''Sheldrick Wildlife Trust''-u.

Meet Diria! When he was just a few days old, this tiny zebra had a narrow escape from lions — and he has a herd of goats to thank for it. As February came to a close, a group of herdsmen here given a big fright when a zebra and her foal darted right past them with several lions in hot pursuit. They watched helplessly as the lions caught and killed the mother, at which point her foal turned on his hooves and instinctively sought shelter from the nearest available source — which happened to be their herd of goats! The herdsman welcomed the little survivor into their fold and gave him some fortifying goat milk before escorting him to the KWS rangers in the area. Given his vulnerable age, KWS brought the foal to our Voi Reintegration Unit, where they felt he would have the best chance at life. In a nod to the ranch where he was rescued, we have named this little chap Diria. He arrived in our care perfectly fluffy and so young that his stripes were still brown. (Zebras are known for their signature black and white stripes, but they come into this world brown and white!) Because foals imprint on their mother’s stripes, our Keepers don a special striped coat when they are with Diria. This allows him to bond with them as nature intended, without running the risk of him becoming overly attached to any single individual. Diria loves his Keepers and the feeling is most certainly mutual! When he’s not guzzling down bottles of milk, he enjoys pampering grooming sessions and following his Keepers around. We have successfully raised several orphaned zebra and reintegrated them back into the wild, and thanks to your support, we are proud to support this lucky little boy along the same journey. _________ Photos © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust #SheldrickTrust #DSWT #Diria #zebra #kenya #whyilovekenya #conservation #tsavo #protect #africa #wildlife

Ždrepče je od tada u brižnim rukama svojih požrtvovanih negovatelja. Pošto imaju puno iskustva sa zebrama, odmah su shvatili da je stanje male zebre jako delikatno. Zebre se vezuju sa svoje majke tako što upamte obrazac njihovih prugu, kako ih ne bi pomešali sa drugim pripadnicima krda. Čuvari su znali da će, ako samo jedna osoba bude brinula o njemu, Dirija da se veže baš za tu osobu, što bi im napravilo poteškoće ako je taj neko odsutan.

Zbog toga su došli na veoma domišljatu ideju da ko god u datom trenutku provodi vreme sa Dirijom nosi posebno odelo sa prugama koje nalikuju zebrinim. Zahvaljujući tome, svi su podjednako u stanju da brinu o ždrepcu, kome je, posle mleka, omiljeno da se pomazi sa njima (The Bored Panda).

Da bi ''Sheldrick Wildlife Trust'' nastavio nesebično da spasava i neguje životinje, ovaj rezervat zavisan je od donacija, pa se nadaju da će Dirijina priča da dotakne srca mnogih koji su voljni i imaju da odvoje sredstva kako bi podržali njihov plemeniti rad.

A little Diria to brighten your day! (And make sure you watch through to the end to see his best gallop.) Diria is a very brave little chap. After lions killed his mother and then set their sights on him, Diria survived by hiding in plain sight among a nearby herd of goats. Now, we’re raising him at our Voi Reintegration Unit, where we have successfully raised several orphaned zebra before him. You may be wondering why Diria’s Keeper is wearing such an eye-catching jacket. A zebra foal imprints on its mother by her unique striped pattern. So, our Keepers put on this special jacket when they work with Diria so he recognizes them as his carer, without becoming overly attached to any one individual. _________ Video © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust #SheldrickTrust #DSWT #Diria #zebra #kenya #whyilovekenya #conservation #tsavo #protect #africa #wildlife
