The mother elephant attempted to rescue it but was unable to do as even after repeated attempts.
On receiving information, animal rescuer Binod Dulu Bora rushed to the spot along with forest officials to help the animal, which was in a miserable state.
He said: “Around 7 am, I received a call from the forest ranger with information about a calf that had strayed away from its herd. We immediately reached the spot and found it covered in mud. The mother attempted several times to take her offspring along but could not as the calf had a leg injury.”
After the successful rescue operation, Bora wrapped the calf in a blanket in order to keep it warm.
It was then taken to the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation in Kaziranga and is currently undergoing treatment for the fracture.
