The 3rd week in October was turning out to be a busy one at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Hot on the heels of the rescue of little Wass and his two baby ostrich friends on the 15th October another call was received by the Trust on the 16th about a baby elephant in the Mount Kenya region. This baby was about 1 year old and was found wandering in the fields of Marania Farm close to the Mount Kenya elephant corridor.
