Protective Mother Elephant Desperately Attempts To Revive Her Unconscious Calf

The emotional time she attempted to awaken her young from anesthesia was when the elephant was caught in a poacher’s snare. A calf that had been wounded by a poacher’s trap on his hind leg was shown in video from the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in south-western Kᴇɴʏᴀ being tranquilized with a sedative by a veterinary team.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was informed of the injured calf by a security patrol, which enabled them to send veterinarians from the Kᴇɴʏᴀ Wildlife Service to the area. The SkyVets team attempted to treat the two-year-old calf, but the protective mother desperately struggled to rouse her offspring from the anaesthesia.

As the calf started to lose consciousness and the mother started to get scared, it was necessary to additionally sedate the mother to ensure a ʀɪsᴋ-free rescue. While the remainder of the herd was on guard, the vets had to move quickly. The strain of the snare could build up over time, cutting into the flesh and causing severe wounds.

Thankfully, this trap was cut off before any ᴅᴀᴍᴀɢᴇ could occur. The elephant quickly woke up and was allowed to return to the herd. The mother was quite protective of her infant, according to Rob Brandford, Executive Director of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (UK), and the SkyVet was unable to appropriately intervene without also putting her under anesthesia.

Their herd was nearby, waiting expectantly, so they had to move as quickly as they could. The trap was easily removed from the calf’s leg with a wire cutter. Fortunately, It didn’t harm or pierce the skin.
