A few days after the birth she lost her interest in the new-born and may have stopped lactating. The calf’s body condition started gradually declining so our team informed it to the veterinary staff at the Elephant Transit Home...As the calf was getting weaker, the Transit Home staff captured him in late August... Besides his general debility for malnutrition, he had a deep infected wound at the base of his tail. Insufficient colostrum feeding as a neonate probably led him to immunosuppression and subsequent easy exposure to pathogens. Despite the treatment and veterinary support for two weeks, the calf sadly died in mid-September.
