Kind Caretaker Helps Orphaned Baby Elephant Learn How to Use His Trunk (VIDEO)

We’re distraught to share the news that Simotua has passed away. Last summer, we rescued a calf bearing heart-wrenching injuries. Aside from losing his mother and herd, a spear wound had left a gaping hole in his forehead and a snare had cut down to the bone of his front leg. Despite these setbacks, #Simotua was a very brave little elephant who stoically understood that daily treatment was integral to his eventual healing. Although we were optimistic about Simotua’s future, his leg wound proved too much to overcome. He died in the late afternoon of 16 March. We do take small comfort in knowing that he passed away while enveloped by the love of his human/elephant family, from the #DSWT Nursery to his foster parents all over the world. It was truly a privilege to know this brave little elephant. We will miss him dearly and forever admire his stalwart struggle to survive.
