A baby elephant has been rescued in the Kruger National Park

KRUGER NATIONAL PARK - Determined park rangers have rescued a baby elephant stuck in a waterhole at Kruger National Park, reuniting the calf with its mother. The rescue operation took almost three hours on Tuesday, and the calf is believed to be a few weeks old. Kruger National Park spokesperson Ike Phaahla says a helicopter with a veterinarian was dispatched to the Letaba area. The mother was tranquilized to enable the rescue team to work. The calf and its mother were observed again yesterday morning and were in good condition.
