At about 11 a.m. during the morning of the 21st February 2012, Mr. Piers Winkworth of the Offbeat Safaris Tented Camp in Meru National Park noticed a lone young elephant calf, who appeared to have a broken leg. The Camp Guides said that they had seen this orphaned elephant over the past few days, and apparently KWS Rangers had received a report about it some 3 weeks ago, but subsequently had been unable to trace it.
