Comments / pictures

Orphan. The calf was found abandoned on August 17, 2015, near a village in Puer city when it was not in good form.

Villagers gave the feeble calf water and food immediately before contacting the rescue center. Knowing that the calf needed milk, a villager brought three goats from 100 kilometers away. The elephant was born in the Year of the Goat, and fed with goat milk, so villagers called it dearly, "Yang Niu," which means "goat girl" in Chinese.
