Critically Injured Elephant Calf Rescued By Wildlife Trust

COMM: An elephant calf has been critically injured by a snare, and it’s a race against
time to save him. 00:14
COMM: In February 2015, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust spotted an elephant calf with
a devastating injury. The youngster, estimated to be only one year old has stepped into an
illegal poaching snare, and it’s wire had cut through to the bone. The mobile veterinary
unit cleaned the wound on site, and applied green clay, a natural remedy to aid the healing
process, and prevent further infection. 00:41
COMM: Three weeks later in March, the team returned to check on the calf, and saw that
the wound had deteriorated, if they were to leave the youngster in this condition in the
brutal Kenyan bush, he faced certain death. 00:58
COMM: It was a race against the clock to transfer the calf three hundred and fifty kilometres
to the trusts medical centre in Nairobi National Park. Once sedated he was driven to a local
airstrip where a plane was waiting. 01:15
COMM: The team unloaded the 200lb calf from the Jeep and carried him on board. Before
long he was airborne and one step closer to receiving the care he so desperately needed. 01:35
COMM: At the centre the calf’s leg was once again cleaned and dressed. He was then kept
in intensive care, so the team could continue treating the wound, and monitoring his condition. 01:57
COMM: Incredibly, only three weeks later the calf was well enough to be released into the
centre’s nursery. Where he joined other injured and orphaned calfs. 02:10
COMM: The team named the calf Mwashoti, after the area in which he was found. And it’s hoped
that one day he’ll be well enough to be released back into the wild. 02:19
COMM: Two months after the rescue he continues to thrive, and has developed a close bond
with Ngilai, another young calf. 02:35
COMM: In the past six months The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust anti poaching teams, have confiscated
1,762 illegal snares. And their fight continues to protect Kenya’s magnificent wildlife from
it’s greatest threat. Man.

This cannot carry on any longer, poachers need to be punished severely. Find them and feed them to the hyenas !

For those who are interested this elephant is living her life semi wild in a place where they prepare elephants to return to the wild. It only costs $au50 to become a foster parent.

Strip the poachers of their clothes, tools, and weapons. Then leave them in the wild with no defenses. Then hungry carnivorous animals may have replenishment.
Do this until the rich that drive demand and thus encouraging / enabling the poachers are forced to get the resources themselves. Then do the same to them.

Torture will not ease the pain of any living creature so instead we should promote the natural cycle of life and give these poachers one last chance to support the sustenance of nature as food and fertilizer.

Do they not understand about microorganisms? They're just taking dirt on the ground and rubbing it into an open wound. How stupid is that.

Not ALL of Man is a threat to wildlife, as this documentary demonstrates. Most people don’t or would not engage in such practices. God bless the human stewards and animals in their care.
