PASIGHAT: A team of officials from the Pasighat Forest Division rescued a male elephant calf from the Remi Wet Rice Cultivation (WRC) area amidst heavy rainfall on Monday.
On getting information, Pasighat DFO (Territorial) Tashi Mize along with his staff rushed to the spot and rescued the calf from the site with the help of nearby Yagrung and Remi villagers.
The heavy water current of Remi stream might have swept away the elephant calf from his parents, informed DFO Mize.
Further, the DFO has asked the villagers to alert them if they hear any sound of elephants' herd nearby so that possible reunion planning of the calf with the herd could be taken up.
"Now the calf is under our custody. As prescribed by a senior veterinarian, we are feeding him 50 gm NAN powder with 1.5 liters of lukewarm water per feeding besides providing him feeding nine times within 24 hours," added Mize.
