Baby elephant rescued in Tawau’s Ladang Brumas Plantation

13th July, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: The Wildlife Office in Tawau on Tuesday successfully rescued a baby elephant from the vicinity of Ladang Brumas Plantation.

This was following a report from the said plantation at about 3pm that the baby elephant was found wandering alone around the plantation without any elephant group in sight.

“The district wildlife office personnel were sent to investigate and secure the baby elephant. The baby elephant was found in weak condition but aware of its surrounding,” disclosed Siti Nur’Ain Ampuan Acheh, the spokesperson for the State Wildlife Department.

At the scene was a Veterinary Officer from the Tawau Veterinary Services Department, to provide medical assistance on the baby elephant.

The baby elephant, a male around 2-3 weeks old weighing 95.5kg, was brought to Tawau and given milk formula. At the same time, it was also given fluids intravenously.

The baby elephant was later transported to Sepilok and arrived there around 5:30am on Thursday.

“A full medical checkup performed found that the baby elephant is bright and alert, and receptive to drinking milk. He still looks slightly dehydrated so it was given oral electrolytes.

“Some small wounds were found in different parts of the body and is now being treated,” said Siti. – By Michael Teh
