At Kanyana: Yorna was brought to Kanyana as a victim of a dog attack in 1995. Her age is unknown. Once her major injuries had healed it was found that she still suffered from eye problems and walking difficulties. It took a long time for the injuries to heal and she had some sight disability but was used to being handled and instead of being euthanized she was kept for education. Smuggle was one of many bobtails seized at Perth Airport as a man was trying to smuggle them out of the country. He arrived at Kanyana in December 2013. Kora was donated by Kanyana volunteers in 2013 to be a part of the education program.
