An elephant calf has been critically injured by a snare and it’s a race against time to save him in February 2015 the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust spotted an elephant calf with the devastating injury the youngster estimated to be only one year old had 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 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 it was a race against the clock to transfer the calf 350 kilometers to the trust’s Medical Center in Nairobi National Park.

Once sedated he was driven to a local airstrip where a plane was waiting the team unloaded the 200-pound car 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 at the center the calf’s leg was once again cleaned and dressed yester but he was then camped in intensive care so the team could continue treating the wound and to monitor in his condition incredibly only three weeks later the calf was well enough to be released into the centers nursery where he joined other injured and orphaned cars the team named the calf my shotty 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 two months after the rescue he continues to thrive and has developed a close bond with Gilly another young car in the past six months the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust anti poaching teams have confiscated 1762 illegal snares and their fight continues to protect Kenya’s magnificent wildlife from its greatest threat man you
