Moses, a seven-and-a-half month old elephant calf, was found alone and close to death in the Vwanza Wildlife Reserve in Malawi, near the border with Zambia.  But the orphaned baby elephant was adopted by Jenny Webb, owner of the Jumbo Foundation, who now cares for him at her home in Lilongwe, Malawi.

@PinnyMuMu 象の赤ちゃん、救助されてよかったですね。でも、まだ頬がこけて痩せてる感じ。ママさんはどうしちゃったんでしょう。救助されたものの、なにか切ない。

I can relate to this because when I was a baby I was raised by elephants.

@MamaMomochan ママさんは密猟者か何者かに殺されちゃったらしいです(泣)酷い。。。 でも写真を見てると人間のお母さんにとってもよく可愛がってもらってるみたいです(^^) 夜はお布団で一緒に寝て、家にいるワンコちゃん達ともお友達みたい。
