This question has been on the research of scientists that whether animals have emotions or no. But this incident will melt even the toughest of hearts.

The staff members of the zoo took away the baby Zhuang Zhuang and treated his injuries. This incident was thought to be an accident by the vets, so after 2 hours that they returned the baby calf to the mother.

Once again no one knew what was wrong with the mother elephant that she started to stamp again on her baby elephant Zhuangzhuang, the keepers intervened and drove the mother away taking the baby elephant with them.

Zhuang Zhuang was rejected immediately by his mother after it was born, this was the reason he kept on crying for 5 hours, the staff at Shendiaoshan Wild Animal Natural Reserve Area which is in, Rongcheng, Shadong province tried to sooth him. It was badly injured.

New born animals or a baby we sometimes can see or even cannot that babies are so soft, that it is inevitable for them to be without their mothers, they cannot this in a good spirit it becomes like a memory in their life which cannot be erased or undo.

Zhuang Zhuang was adopted by one of the keepers and he is now making a good progress.

The staff members of the zoo were taken aback as they had seen that the mother and calf were having a strong bond but what went wrong, the could not get it and they choose not to take a chance.

Animals possess the quality of love within themselves but in very rare cases they cry, even if they cry it is not known to anyone – very painful incident.
