|The orphaned calf, which was found wandering around in the Piah Forest reserve apparently searching for its mother which had been shot by hunters, was in the process of being relocated to the Kuala Gandah Elephant Translocation Unit in Pahang to join a herd of 11 elephants.|
He is supposed to have been given 20mg Xylazine.
Just 10m away from the trailer at the Felcra Kampong Chepor oil palm estate, Mat Chepor collapsed. Despite efforts by Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) rangers from Perak and Pahang to keep him alive, the calf grew weaker overnight and died 18 hours later.
