    'Inconsolable' baby elephant back with mother
    New mom stunned Oregon zookeepers by kicking calf following his birth

    The mother of a newborn baby elephant is no longer tethered, and is now together with her baby, nursing it.

    It's an exciting development for zoo handlers after the elephant mother Rose-Tu initially displayed aggression toward the newborn elephant.

    Zoo staff have been busy since the baby elephant's birth, working to insure the baby's survival.

    That is so funny because ever since we found out she was expecting, the zoo staff told the public she was having a girl! They had done an ultrasound and determined the baby was female so you are probably right!
