Albino Baby Elephant Has Made A Full Recovery After Being Rescued From Poacher’s Snare

Khanyisa, a rare albino elephant found seriously injured and alone in South Africa, now lives a happy life with a herd of elephants in Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development (HERD).

For Khanyisa, life was difficult from the start. Born albino, at the age of four months, she was caught in a poaching trap in the Kruger National Park in South Africa that went through her mouth.

Trapped for four days, dehydrated and unable to eat due to her injuries, she was rescued and taken to a sanctuary in Mpumalanga, northeast of Johannesburg.

She was then transferred to Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development (HERD), where she now lives with a herd of elephants.
