The Crying Elephant


Recommended Posts

15606662960_595325e0da_c.jpgConflict at the waterhole

 

Addo Elephant National Park. A group of eight elephants at a waterhole on the southeast side of the NP. The elephant on the right was behaving very aggressively towards a very young elephant (out of the picture to the left) while the others engaged the aggressive animal. Eventually they ran the aggressive animal off and then the group settled and enjoyed the small waterhole. (The reddish color of the elephants is due to the color of the mud in the waterhole.)

Thanks very much, mr6666. This is potentially fantastic news for those concerned about the decimation of the elephant. I'm not surprised that President Obama would support an ivory ban but I am delightfully shocked and amazed that presumed U.S. pressure upon China has made that nation, with its miserable record regarding animals, join in an ivory ban, as well. Bravo!

An update on Mohan, the other elephant the group who rescued Raju is trying to save.  There was a court hearing this week with nothing conclusive.  Another hearing is scheduled for Nov. 28th.  

 

Fingers crossed he will soon be released to live a life of mangos and bathing.

A update on Mohan, the elephant in a similar plight as Raju.  A court in India ordered him to have a full evaluation by a veterinarian, and for the party (illegally) holding him to appear in court in mid-December.  

 

Will report with another update then.

Thanks for this, GD.
