Elephant calf rescued at Nagaon

A group of nature lovers rescued an elephant calf from Mezigaon in Parkup along the Nagaon-Karbi Anglong border on Monday night much to the delight of a section of local residents.

Acting on an information of the deserted calf loitering throughout the day in the jungle, the Green Guard acivists backed by the forest beat officer of Chapanala, Pranab Bora along with NGO leader Dulu Bora reached Mezigaon. But to be caught at an unprecedented situation as the villagers did not allow them to rescue the calf calling it a deity. 

Instead they started offering pujas to protect them  while a section of them fled from the spot. A freightened calf fell tired and slept on the ground. The calf was gently lifted onto a mini-truck and was transported to the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation at Kaziranga.
