Cast Away Calf
This adorable calf had somehow survived on his own for who knows how long, but he needed medical attention fast before things turned for the worst. The baby elephant was rescued in South Africa after being left for dead by his herd. The poor calf was very sick and had very little chance of surviving more than a few days.
The calf needed medicine fast. The team of people who rescued him would try everything that they could to get the little guy back to normal, and attempt to bring him back to his herd. They would try so many things to nurse him back to health, but the thing that ultimately worked was something no one expected.
Being with his own kind would have been the best course of action for the baby elephant’s wellbeing. Because of this, animal experts made several attempts to reunite the calf with his herd in Hluhluwe’s Bonamanzi Game Reserve. However, the rescuers weren’t expecting the outcome of their efforts.
Sadly, the baby elephant’s herd did not take to the little guy for some reason, and he was again orphaned and left without his elephant family. At that point, the human wildlife rescuers took things into their own hands, but no one could have expected the unbelievable series of events that would ensue from here on.
