The baby elephant arrived at the rehabilitation centre two years ago when she was found injured and abandoned in the wild by some villagers. She was named Yang Niu which means "goat's daughter" as she was bottle-fed goat's milk. After two years of care, her wounds have healed and she's as happy as an ellie could be, as evident in the video.
