Dead Baby Elephant

A baby elephant was found dead today on us below our dam in an area the elephants have been spending a good deal of time.  The carcass appears to be about three days old. There were lion tracks nearby as well as Hyena but our rangers felt that neither killed it.  Because not all of the carcass was yet consumed they thought he may have died from disease and that the hyenas had then fed on it.  We have put the camera trap on the carcass.  Poor little thing.
