When Bunji was found, she was pink, known as a “pinky” to wildlife carer’s, which means she had no fur and her eyes were only just opening. She was immediately taken in by Brinkley, put straight onto bare skin under the three jackets Brinkley was wearing at the time. Already being put through the stress of the accident, hearing a heartbeat helped to calm Bunji down, feel warm, and feel safe. This was the beginning of a bond, and story of a lifetime.
Bunji is now 5 years old, her story is a very special one, and one that is long etched in the mind, and heart, of both Brinkley and many who followed this journey.
Keep your eyes out for the book “ Saving Bunji “ by Brinkley Davies, coming 2022.
