Chinese elephants: Mom abandons baby, zoo workers console tearful guy for 5 hours
Baby elephant in China canâ€™t stop crying after being stomped by mom - NY Daily News
This is so sad!
Tears streamed down his gray trunk for five hours as zookeepers struggled to comfort the baby elephant.
"He couldn’t bear to be parted from his mother and it was his mother who was trying to kill him."
The petite pachyderm, born in August, is now doing well. The zookeeper who rescued him from his violent mother adopted him and helped him thrive at the Shendiaoshan wild animal reserve in Rong-cheng, China.
