It would appear that an elephant on a railway bridge was hit by a train and either killed outright or during its decent to the wadi below.
Found to be dead, a digger was brought in to bury the unfortunate beast. In the process of burial it was noticed that she was pregant and so an emergency 'C' section was done.
A living calf was removed.
I do hope the little guy makes it.
I am not quite sure who to credit for these photos as they appear to have been passed on several times. I will then mention all names which have appeared:
Prof. Dr Jacob V. Cheeran, Dr Jay Kumar, Dr.T.K.Raman, Brigadier PTGangadharan, Skaria.C.D and last but not least Wayne Jackson who forwarded them to me. Thank you all. I am sure many Zoo News Digest readers will find them interesting.
