A helpless baby elephant was rescued after she was captured in a snare for reportedly 4 days. The poor little animal was found tangled not far away from the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Sadly, the catch left deep wounds on the elephant calf’s face and ears, however according to her rescuers she’ll make a full recovery.
Fortunately, the little one was located just in time by some volunteers at Hoedspruit Endangered Types Centre, an elephant orphanage. The baby elephant, who the rescuers have actually named Khanyisa, is a very unique one. Her skin pigmentation is not grey just like any other’s elephant, but pink.
” She looked so innocent, fragile and pure, and yet so brave– a unique beauty who had been [ injured] by the hands of man,” Sue Howells at the elephant orphanage told. ” We understood we had to assist her and protect her and give her a place of security that she never ever needs to endure (something like that) again.”
