Saw this little guy in the Letaba river bed on the H1-5 on the 31st of March. Did not seem to be suffering and was full of life, running around, flapping ears, trying to teach his trunk to do what he wants it to do .. The rest of the heard treated him same as all the others ...

I do hope the little guy gets a chance in nature to live a great life ...
