WHO’S SUSI?
 

 

 

Susi is the elephants still live in the Barcelona Zoo. And yet we say because your life is at serious risk, since the end of Alicia’s death in February 2008, the Elephanta Susi companion who was also the dominant female, Susi is in a serious state of depression. But we will begin to tell their story from the beginning, a biography riddled with gaps and loopholes that only knows Susi …
 
Susi was born in the wild in Africa in 1973 and we do not know if it was one of the many elephant orphans by hunters or captured to be exploited in a circus, the fact is that one day Susie went to the premises of Terra Natura and then  was transfered to Barcelona Zoo in 2002. They shared the premises with Susi Alicia, an elephant playing an important role as the dominant female in a species that is essentially matriarchal in their social organization, although neither was well within its zoo since this type of facilities do not contribute to their physical or mental, at least they could be together and endure his captivity a minimum comfort each other.
 
But in late February 2008 Alice died in circumstances not yet clarified, leaving Susie alone and with an ever increasing depression. Susi is the obvious discomfort of all their movements and behavior are clear from a deep depression, which is also seriously damaging their physical and mental. Just stop for a few against Susi few minutes to check:

* Stereotyped behavior has increasingly accentuated: a stereotyped movement is one that is conducted on a repetitive and compulsive behavior no purpose. In the case of the elephant is typical balancing the head and trunk, and a “dance” performed alternating front legs to support them in the ground.

* Susi eat their own feces: this is called coprophagy, and is a behavior that betrays her state of anxiety, stress and boredom.

* Intestinal disorders: the boredom that makes you eat your own feces, it is that makes food Susi insistently ask visitors to the zoo … simply because they do not have anything else to do for the absence of any enrichment program, which in the jargon of zoos is called to give the animals something to do. Thus this giant eats vegetarian sausages, chips, plastic bags, toys and anything that is brought within reach of his trunk, which causes a host of gastrointestinal disorders, one of the most frequent causes of death in elephants in zoos.
