Treating Elephant cow

Elephant cow behaving unusually

The STS team in South Africa are quick to assist the local veterinarian in the examination of this Elephant cow on a reserve. An Elephant cow is a female Elephant.

The cow is acting abnormally and has been for the last few months. It is expected that she has an injury either to her tusks, feet or other parts of her body. The STS team arrive to assist the vet in a full examination of her.

After examining her body thoroughly, including the soles of her feet and radiographs of both of her tusks, the team decide to remove her tracking collar. They suspect that this might be the cause of her aberrant behaviour.

The reserve staff will monitor her closely for the next few weeks, to see if there is any change in her behaviour. But, at least we have ruled out the most common issues. We will update you on this, as and when we progress.
