Dead Calf & the Mourning elephant

The 2 month old calf unfortunately died last week at Kabini (apparently eating a poisonous fruit, reason yet to be confirmed). This was the mourning after the death. She wouldn't let anyone get close to the baby elephant. It was indeed a tragic emotional moment. When the forest dept folks came close to the baby to inspect the cause of the death, she charged them like crazy. The baby was cremated one day later.
