Baby Elephant is Constantly Following Her Rescuer Who Saved Her From Death

When baby elephant Moyo was only a few days old almost drowned trying to cross a flooded river. She was abandoned by her herd and a pack of hyenas were trying to approach her to harm her when help came. Rangers from the” Wild is Life” Sanctuary rescued her and took her back to the sanctuary.


The founder, Roxy Danckwerts became Moyo’s new mommy. Moyo is now 14 months old and is following her new mommy Roxy everywhere.


”She knows my voice, my smell and somehow knows where I am at all time. How, I have no idea!”


”It’s getting trickier with time because Moyo keeps getting bigger and her raids around the house are more difficult to handle.She is one of those animals with whom I have formed an extraordinary bond of friendship, trust and love. Letting go will be hard. However, I am so determined and so sure of this road that I have chosen. I want the best for the elephant children, and that best is freedom to roam and to make their own choices,” explains Danckwerts.
