The orphaned calf was rescued on Tuesday and brought to the Jaldapara National Park by foresters of North Raidak Range of the Buxa Tiger Reserve in the Alipurduar district, where The elephant herd had abandoned it.

The calf had to be housed with other elephants at Jaldapara. Champakali, a Kunki (trained elephant) readily mothered the calf. As soon as the 7-month-old orphan calf met Champakali at the Holong Philkhana (elephant shed,) the Kunki pulled the calf close to her and even nursed her, as if her own.
