Kisah Yatim Si Anak Gajah

Satu2nyer anak gajah yang terselamat dan dapat diselamatkan dari kejadian misteri kematian akibat diracun ! Sedihnyer !

An orphaned pygmy elephant called Joe is on the mend after keepers feared the trauma stemming from the death of his mother would kill him. The young calf was rescued by wildlife officials after he was found trying to wake his lifeless mother, who had been mysteriously poisoned. The only survivor of his herd, the elephant had not been drinking enough milk and was dramatically losing weight. But Joe has gained an appetite for milk formula and has bonded with a keeper at the Lok Kawi wildlife park, Malaysia.

Joe the elephant and Dr Diana Ramirez at the the Lok Kawi zoo near Kota Kinabalu. Dr Ramirez said: "It's too soon to be sure that Joe will survive. Sometimes baby elephants can look OK but then still die suddenly. They are very prone to colic and it can be fatal very quickly. Once he's past six or seven months then we can be more confident that he'll survive."



The bond between the baby elephant and his keeper has grown to be strong. The young orphaned calf loves Augustin's attention and if he doesn't get it he kicks him in the legs or lightly rubs against him.



Joe the elephant doesn't like showers and has to be washed in his pen. There are an estimated 1,500 pygmy elephants in the world.

Keeper Augustin David, 29, keeps to a gruelling schedule ensuring Joe's survival. He feeds the elephant milk every two hours - even during nighttime .

Joe the elephant and Augustin, his keeper, have bonded since his mother's death. Augustin said: "The early signs are good - he's active, playful and quite naughty."

Baby Joe rests at his 'surrogate mother's' feet. Like a human baby, the elephant loves to suckle people's thumbs.
