Baby Elephant Abandoned By His Herd Is Depressed Until He Meets The Most Unlikely Friend.

Elephants are very socially driven animals and their lives in many ways depend on the herd which they are part of. If they get abandoned or separated from the family, very often that can have serious and life-threatening consequences.

Baby elephant, named Ellie, had been rejected by his herd when he arrived at the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in South Africa. Since he had dangerous health issues the caretakers were very concerned for his life.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t just his body that was ailing, the abandonment had left grave psychological consequences, he was depressed and lethargic, but only days since Ellie arrived everything changed.
