Working with animals I already knew and understood about being in the moment, and although I have done an Animal communication course, I fully believe all animals do understand what you say to them, either word for word or just from inferrance, something which Lawrence witnessed several times. I cried my eyes out when they shot Mnumzane in Chapter 40, but like Lawrence stated following discussion with other rangers, it was and is often difficult to diagnose the root cause - excuse the punn - of him going rogue. I have seen documentaries on just such the subject. I'm glad The Royal Zulu project did finally get off the ground, thanks to Nkosi Biyela, the most powerful chief, who controlled the biggest chunk of land finally agreeing to it. And I also agree that its best that the new generation are allowed to return to the wild, and thus have less interaction with humans.
