This male elephant calf was rescued on 6th May 2008 by Assam Forest department from Hamren, Dokmoka Range, Karbi Anglong, Assam. In January 2011 Hamren entered the Elephant Rehabilitation Program and was moved to Manas National Park with Sikom, Soni, Tinku and Tikla. One night the calves managed to break out of their night stockade and four of them went missing. Despite an extensive search by the rangers Hamren was not found. He was later seen with a wild elephant herd who had accepted him completely. Hamren is now living again as a wild, free ranging elephant.
