Jasmine arrived on the 4th October 2013.
We don’t know exactly what happened in Jasmine’s case. Indeed, her mother may have died during child birth. At just 1 day old, Jasmine was being hunted by an eagle and her chances were very slim.
It is quite possible that Jasmine was born at a loading dock, on a slaughterhouse or live export truck, or in a holding pen at a slaughterhouse. Thousands of babies are born during transport every year, but these babies immediately become waste products and are often dumped over the fence and left to fend for themselves.
We are doing everything we can to help Jasmine grow up healthy and strong. One of our sanctuary volunteers is providing Jasmine with 24 hour care and the bond between them has grown amazingly.
This is Jasmine’s first venture outdoors to meet the other residents at our sanctuary.
