  1. Is there any evidence at all that this baby was actually rescued? I’ve found nothing in any ‘news’ report. No photos, no details of the rescue or who actually got the elephant out. What happened to the baby and it’s herd? Where was the herd during the rescue? I know one thing for sure, a mother elephant won’t just leave her baby, the herd must have been around and yet there are no photos. Did the person taking the original photos become so enamoured with the rescue he or she forgot to keep snapping? This all seems very strange.
