Injured Elephant

This young elephant is part of a breeding herd that was recently seen on Ingwelala.

It somehow managed to get its left hind leg snagged in some cable which needed to be removed.

The herd then moved into the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve where field staff were assisted by a Veterinarian to remove the cable.

The elephant should make a full recovery.
