This tiny newborn male calf was orphaned during the morning of 20th November, 2011, apparently left by his mother when she and her herd were chased out of an area of human settlement near the Ruiri outpost in the lower Imenti Forest. The calf wandered into an adjacent village searching for company from whence KWS Rangers rescued him. Due to the terrain and dense forest conditions reuniting him with his herd would prove impossible, and so we were contacted by the Senior Warden Mount Kenya with the news of a rescue. The calf was transported to the Lewa airfield so that the baby could be airlifted from there to the Nairobi Nursery, arriving in torrential rain, well after dark.
