Of Delinquents and Bull Elephants… Happy Fathers’ Day!

Jack Dey-sig

G’day

Many documented trials have now been undertaken on game parks and zoological institutions, regarding delinquent behaviours due to lack of bulls or fathers in herd elephants.

If you want an interesting read, simply type delinquent elephants into your search engine and draw your own conclusions.

It seems, during certain stages of early experimentation, collecting samples from Africa for zoos around the world, young male elephants, separated from the influence of older bull elephants, became aggressive towards other species and to other female elephants, both younger and older than themselves.

It is supposed that unchecked young males had a heightened Musth, a  flexing of young testosterone, which normally is checked and kept controlled by the young male, simply by the presence of a larger and respected bull male.

Without the influence of the bull, a young male is left at the mercy of his desires and exhibits aggressive behaviour, which leads to violence and passion levelled against the females and younger males of the herd.

It didn’t seem to make any difference to the young males, when the older females of the herd stepped up to discipline the young males.

Does any of this sound familiar?

We have a term for this in our own societies… fatherlessness.

So, to all the men that are fathers of children, step up and be a guiding light in your child’s life. A child learns self respect and self control in the secure confines of family.

You can make a difference.

Happy Fathers’ Day!

My new book, Aunt Tabbie’s Wings is a great read on this topic. Check it out. Coming soon.

Another intriguing read, Secrets of Black Dean Lighthouse is on the drawing board.
