On Easter Monday 2022 was Kiteto’s rescueversary. It had been exactly a year that she had arrived at Kilimanjaro Animal CREW as a little orphan. We were supposed to celebrate this special day but everything came differently. Kiteto wasn’t able to live for this special day.
Sadly, on Easter Sunday 2022, she passed away. With abruptly developing symptoms pointing towards a bite from a venomous snake.
We are devastated. Especially, her close family is inconsolable – her elephant friends but also her human friends and caretakers, who work tirelessly to keep her happy and healthy. We all can’t believe that she’s gone.
She was an exceptionally friendly and affectionate orphan, especially with certain caretakers she had a very special bond.
One year ago she got this second chance to live, she used it, she was a happy little elephant but some things are not in our hands…
We would like to thank everybody, who was involved in her rescue and rehabilitation and who supported us in looking after her.
