A baby elephant cried for five hours after his own mother attacked and abandoned him at a zoo in China.
Veterinarians hoped it was an accident and treated the baby before returning him to the mother, but he was attacked again. So they removed him from her.
"The calf was very upset and he was crying for five hours before he could be consoled," an employee said, per Metro. "He couldn’t bear to be parted from his mother and it was his mother who was trying to kill him."
The zoo believes the mother elephant is depressed.
