An elephant Whisper





An abandoned elephant calf was rescued by the Forest Department from Moochikkadavu, near Agali, in Attappady and shifted to the Dhoni elephant camp near Palakkad. The six-month-old female calf was found with an injury on its navel a few days ago. A team of forest veterinarians led by David Abraham took care of the calf for four days hoping for the arrival of its mother. When the mother did not turn up, the Forest Department took the calf to the elephant camp.
