Comments / pictures

A Sumatran elephant has died of malnutrition and malabsorption during treatment due to a dental infection at the Aek Nauli Elephant Conservation Camp (ANECC) in Simalungun, North Sumatra.

The male elephant, named Dwiki, had been transferred to the camp on Dec. 18 from the Barumun Nagari Wildlife Sanctuary (BNWS) in North Padang Lawas regency, along with another Sumatran elephant that had a wound on its right cheek.

In the second week of February, Dwiki started to show changes in his behavior and refused to eat.

Rudianto Saragih Napitu, head of Conservation at the North Sumatra Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA), said an ANECC team had tried to give Dwiki drugs and vitamins via intravenous drip, but his condition continued to deteriorate and he died on Feb. 14 morning.

The animal’s remains were buried in the ANECC grounds, though its Tusks had been removed for storing at the offices of the North Sumatra BKSDA.
