Orphan elephant has uncertain future

Ben Curtis | Associated Press
A baby orphaned elephant reaches its trunk out to pick up branches to eat at an event Wednesday to commemorate World Environment Day at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya. Trust founder Daphne Sheldrick said at the event, which was attended by U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert Godec, that they are seeing an upsurge in orphaned elephants because of the poaching crisis occurring across Africa.
