This is the saddest thing I heard today. Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is mourning the loss of little Humpty, an orphan hippo saved December 2016, just before Christmas. Humpty was rescued after she became stuck in the mud, trapped in a fast drying pond in Lamu, Northern Kenya.
In a world gone so very wrong, it feels like we too mourn the loss of our innocence with Humpty’s death.
From the Trust
“Little Humpty died quite unexpectedly. She was actually running and playing in her pond the evening before her death, and the only sign of something being amiss was the fact that her rear end would float more than usual. Sadly, an autopsy revealed that little could have saved Humpty as she had a completely twisted gut, the reasons for which remain a mystery.”
