article imageBaby elephant cries after mother rejects him

By Owen Weldon     Sep 14, 2013 in World
A baby elephant was left crying for hours after he was attacked and abandoned by his own mother at a zoo located in China.
According to WebProNews, no one is sure why the attack happened, but it looks like the mother was trying to kill the young elephant. Zookeepers had no choice but to keep away from her.
According to Huffington Post, employees at the zoo had to chase her away from the calf. This is also not the first time they had to do it, because the first attack happened immediately after the birth of the calf. Zookeepers thought that the first attack was an accident but once they returned the calf to the mother, she attacked him again.
The calf cried for around five hours before he could be consoled by zookeepers.
According to Daily Mail, zookeepers are now bringing the calf up, and they say that he is making good progress.
The mother is said to be suffering from possible depression, but as of now nobody is sure why she acted this way.
