A helpless elephant was rescued after she was caught in a snare for four days.
The poor little creature was found entangled near the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
Unfortunately, the trap left deep wounds on the face and ears of the baby elephant, but according to her rescuers, she will make a full recovery.
Fortunately, volunteers from the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center found the baby in time.
The baby elephant, whom the rescuers named Hanisa, is special. The pigmentation of her skin is not gray, like any other elephant, but pink.
“She looked so innocent, fragile and pure, but such a brave, unique beauty [offended] by human hands,” said Sue Howells of the Elephant Orphanage.
“We knew we had to help him, protect him and secure a place where she would never have to endure (something like that) again”.
Photos of the rescued elephant show how happy she is to finally be safe. And despite what she had to go through, Hanisa was so brave.
“Hanisa is an exceptionally strong and courageous baby elephant,” said Sue Howells. “She is incredibly resilient. Her sweet, fragile and thoughtful personality shines through the toughness despite what she’s been through”.
