Early morning on Sunday the 8th September Angela Sheldrick received a call from Batian Craig about a new born calf that had apparently walked into Kiparo Boma on Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia. The calf was new born, very unstable on her legs, and in search of food and comfort. The mystery was that no elephants remained in the area.
