Orphaned baby elephant on road to recovery after finding new home with humans and two pet dogs


  • Orphaned one-week old calf was found on brink of starvation by rangers
  • Baby elephant Moses has been adopted by the Jumbo Foundation in Malawi

  • He had just a 20 per cent chance of survival but that has now risen to 50 per cent after several months at the sanctuary

Just a few months ago this baby elephant was found alone and on the brink of starvation after being separated from its herd.

But now this adorable calf has made an incredible recovery after being rescued by a charity for orphaned elephants in Malawi.

Baby
elephant Moses, named after another famous abandoned calf, has been
adopted by the Jumbo Foundation where he is being raised by humans.




Going for a walk: Seven-and-a-half month old
orphaned elephant Moses on his daily walk with pet dogs Barney, left,
Bagheera right, and foundation owner Jenny Webb





New home: A seven-and-a-half month old orphaned
elephant calf named Moses cuddles his adoptive mother and Jumbo
Foundation owner, Jenny Webb, at their home in Lilongwe, Malawi






Dinner time: Moses drinking one of his two-hourly formula bottle feeds






Sweet dreams: Moses in a makeshift bed with Jenny Webb as the baby elephant won't sleep alone

The foundation described the
heart-breaking moment abandoned Moses was found in February this year
when he was just a week old by rangers at Vwaza Wildlife Reserve.

A
post on the foundation website blog says: 'Rangers at Vwaza Wildlife
Reserve noticed a baby elephant on his own running around frantically
trying to find his mother. The rangers monitored the baby and tried to
locate the herd he belonged to without success.'

A few days later, the rangers spotted
the calf again in the South Rukuru River and his condition had
deteriorated so much he was too weak to get out of the water.

It continued: 'The rangers then decided to intervene and rescued the baby.



Thirsty: Despite being brought up by humans, Moses should be able to return to the wild






New surroundings: Moses at his feeding place at the bottom of a staircase at his home in Lilongwe, Malawi











New friends: Baby elephant Moses makes his way
into the kitchen with the sanctuary pet dogs, left, and is tempted with
one of his foal milk formula bottles, right


'Various parks and wildlife organizations were contacted and nobody was in a position to take the elephant.'

Jumbo
Foundation owner, Jenny Webb, was contacted about the baby calf and
agreed to take on custody of the elephant on behalf of the National
Parks and Wildlife.

He had just a 20 per cent chance of survival but that has now risen to 50 per cent after several months at the sanctuary.

She began feeding him a foal milk formula as elephants don't start eating solids until they are eight months old.



Play time: Moses plays in a dust pit with carer Matimat Julius





Rescued: Moses was found alone and close to death in the Vwaza Wildlife Reserve






Close pals: Pet dog Kirby licks up Moses' spilled formula feed

Ms Webb also sleeps on a
mattress next to the baby elephant as he won't sleep without having some
form of contact similar to what he would have had with his mother in
the wild.

The
orphaned elephants are raised at the foundation in Lilongwe, Malawi, in
a way to ensure that they are physically and physiologically able to be
released back into the wild.

Elephants need to live as part of a herd and other animals can make a good substitute.

So Moses now also has several new friends - primarily two pet dogs at the sanctuary, Barney and Bagheera.

Laid back: Moses walking through the home with pet dogs that have now become his constant companions






Second chance: Moses now has a 50 per cent chance of survival after being rescued on the brink of starvation
