Baby news is always good news, but this baby is special because it was born in the wild of a rhino mom who was hand raised by humans!
Two rare clouded leopard cubs and four Asiatic black bear cubs that had been rescued after they were separated from their mothers, are now ready to begin their new life in the jungles of Manas National Park in Assam after having spent quite some time in human company.
From hand-raised to near-wild habitat, it is a big moment for Vivek-the tiger who was rescued and hand-raised in Assam and is now set to make Bhopal’s Van Vihar National Park his new home.
An Elephant mother and calf trapped in a ravine for at least four days in Karbi Anglong, Assam finally got some help last week when Assam Forest officials and WTI team worked hard to rescue the two. While the rescuers were lucky in helping the baby out, the mother could not be saved.
The CWRC (Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation) Transit Home in Kokrajhar became home to two wild Asiatic bear cubs earlier this month when villagers carried them from the forest thinking their mother had abandoned them. The bears will now live in the centre till they are ready to be released again in the wild.
Five orphaned elephant calves aged three to five had lost their family due to various circumstances in Assam. But thankfully the calves were rescued and are now back in the wild world they belong to.
