Nutters (NT) 2007-2008

The Nutters were a large wild group who were encountered in the vicinity of Aztecs and Lazuli from August 2007 onwards. Habituation started with the group in November 2007, and was progressing well. However, several of the animals seemed to suffer from disease, and five semi-habituated females emigrated, probably to join the Hoppla group, before they could be ID-chipped. The remainder of the Nutters were no longer followed thereafter. Genetical analyses later revealed that the Nutters dominant female had an Elveera evictee as her mother.
