The park contacted the veterinarians for assistance as they were concerned that the mother might scream to attract the surrounding 30-elephant herd if they tried to extract the infant.

“It was impossible to get near the baby while the mother was nearby, so we gave her three doses of tranquilizers, but she moved towards her baby before passing out and hit her head,” said lead national park veterinarian Dr. Chananya Kanchanasarak.

The calf suckled milk while her mother fainted in the hole, giving the rescuers some time to rest.
