Baby Elephant

This is a pic of the baby elephant just born at the Oregon Zoo. And who doesn't love a baby -- even if it has to live its life behind bars? We have been on Elephant Watch at work for the past couple days and yesterday i got to see the video that no one else saw -- of the mama kicking the baby out of her, then kicking it around when it came out lifeless. Brutal, but the babe survived. Also not seen by the public -- how the baby has been crying all day for its mother -- who they are keeping at a distance so she doesn't kick him around any more. If i can post the intense birth video without fear of gettin fired, i will.
