Rescuer Saves Starving Baby Elephant With Bullet Wounds

By Meghan Walsh

Usually, when we think about dwindling elephant population numbers, we think of the cruel hunters who kill elephants for their ivory tusks. However, the ivory trade isn’t the only threat to wild elephants.

[post_ads]For Sumatran elephants, who are native to Southeast Asia, a major threat comes in the form of cruel palm oil plantation farmers and owners who are rapidly destroying their habitat to make space for larger plantations that provide palm oil for almost half of all consumer foods, personal care products, and household cleaners.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the cruel workers consider the forest’s native animals like elephants to be pests and will kill or harm any animal that gets too close to the crops. Recently, a starving baby elephant, who possibly lost her mom to the palm oil industry, was discovered wandering alone by a rescuer from BKSDA.

After a quick examination, the rescuers realized the baby also had a bullet wound in her side, and while they don’t know for sure who is responsible, it’s possible she wandered too close to a plantation and was shot by a worker.

[post_ads_2]Thankfully, the baby elephant is now in good hands and has been moved to a government elephant center to get the treatment she desperately needs to recover and hopefully will eventually be released back into the wild once fully recovered
