Little Elephant

1612 little elephant01

Here are some photos of the little elephant that was abandoned by his mother and trying to survive without the herd. Marc told us his age was about 2 years but the elephant was very small and undeveloped.

He was on his own when we saw him in front of our bungalow. We called the gate and reported the sighting. Marc came around in the evening but the little one was gone and nothing could be done late at night.

Next morning everybody was looking for the little elephant and luckily somebody saw him on Goede hoop border. The vet darted the elephant and by the afternoon he was transferred to re-hab and a good ending for everyone.
