While patrolling the foothills of Coimbatore Marudhamalai, the forest department heard the sound of an elephant. Upon further inspection, they found a female elephant accompanied by her calf. 
The mother elephant appeared to be ill, and her calf stood by her side, refusing to leave.
Coimbatore forestry staff and doctors, led by the District Forest Officer, promptly arrived at the scene to treat the sick elephant. They administered medical care, provided fruits, and monitored her health closely. The calf, visibly distressed over its mother's condition, is also being fed and monitored by the team.
