Wonderful to know that the youngster will recover. Elephants are wonderful animals, compassionate and caring towards each other.

What a great accomplishment to save this elephants leg. So interesting that the herd seemed to understand that you were there to help.The damage caused by the snare was rather sad, but important to see. Rotten poachers!

Thank you Amy for this very moving account of this young Ellie! God Bless the wonderful Vet & his assistants for coming to this beautiful pachyderm & saving his young life. I just hate the poachers more & more!!

We can learn so much about the value of that one animal in the moving herd. How poignant the mom knew to hold back as her babe was being helped. Such deep intelligence. Thank you Amy – as usual – beautifully photographed and narrated.

Bravo to everyone who helped free the brave little elephant from the snare! The brutality of poachers is without limit. I wish I could do more to stop them.
