On Saturday the 8th of September we received a call from the KWS Vet, Dr. Mathew Mutinda, with news about an abandoned elephant calf in the community lands abutting Mount Kenya’s forests in the area of Judea. The fate of his mother remained unconfirmed but he was a suspected human wildlife conflict case.
