In Prague Zoo there is a new resident for only a few hours. It’s the nine-year-old gorilla Donnie. Breeders brought her from northern Spain early Friday evening on a CASA military plane. Doni is interesting not only because she is the daughter of the famous Muga – the first low gorilla born in the Czech Republic. In Prague, a nine-year-old female is supposed to help expand the breeding by owning at least one cub. This is what her journey looked like.

Hear the report of Danny Gorilla’s relocation to Prague

More than ninety kilograms of gorilla Dhoni are already in the transport box. I got there without any problem. For several months, she was accustomed to the fact that every morning she received her breakfast in this box, for example her favorite grape wine. According to Chief Nurse Lucia Gandarillas Chicote, the training has paid off.

Everything should be the same every day. So as to make her feel comfortable. The trip, of course, would be stressful for her. Since we got here about two months ago, the cage – that is, the shipping box We were greeted, so we prepared Donnie. It was part of her daily training. Just a little more difficult. She had to go into the cage alone,The nurse explains.

After signing the delivery papers, he can head to the nearest airport. It is located in Santander and the ride from Cabárceno Park will take about 20 minutes.

“I am quite excited so far. We are not going to overtake. Doni in a cargo box, in a trailer behind the car. Let’s hope that everything goes as it was up to this point,” the director of Prague Zoo, Miroslav Bobek, commented on the current situation.

without falling asleep

Senior Veterinarian Roman Vodicka adds that Donnie does not need to sleep.

“Colleagues said they didn’t put her to sleep. She climbed into the box without any problems. They gave her some sedatives to feed her. But of course, when the animal enters the box and already feels that something is going to happen, it does not need to take medicine. From the way she behaves, she looks calm. They let him in her honey, so you can take it in. We’ll see along the way, but so far it looks good,Says the vet Vodička.

At Santander Airport, we come to the Czech military aircraft CASA, and it is ready here. The sturdy green transport box containing Dhoni is loaded onto the plane by airport workers using a lizard.

‘Almost perfect’

Donnie looks out the small window and sees what’s going on around her. The transfer case is a cube with a volume of about one and a half meters. There is an inscription: Doni, the story continues, and refers to her famous mother Moja, who lives here in Spain.

After more than half an hour it is loaded and waiting for take off.

At about 5 pm, the plane landed in Kibli. During the four-hour flight, Donnie was awake and calm. The transportation turned out to be excellent.

“Donnie was transferred from the plane to the car. Everything has gone almost perfect so far. Almost because we took off from Santander an hour late due to the strike of French air traffic controllers. But that’s just a detail in the whole context”, adds Miroslav Bobek, director of Prague Zoo .

From here, Donnie heads to the zoo in Troy, where she will be quarantined. You will be the first to meet Kisum, a new male gorilla from Prague, with whom you are supposed to have children in the future.
