Date of Arrival

Our three legged mum, Peggy (aka Big Mamma), lost her leg in a snare and the workers of the mine, where her troop lived, rescued her as the snare was cruelly wrapped around her waist. It was buried deep in her skin and she was carrying a tiny four week old baby, Lee. Peggy was brought to the sanctuary, and with the utmost care, dedication and love survived her ordeal and developed into the magnificent dominant female she is today.
