Enough Already

Is what I imagined this baby elephant is thinking. He is being taking amazingly good care of at the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and otherwise, he surely would have been dead in the wild - and eventually he will be released back out into the wild and live a great life. But now, everyday he has tons of tourists and students come check him out as he is paraded down to get some milk and play around for 30 minutes in front of everyone. I think he just misses his Mommy (who unfortunately was poached I think, leaving him abandoned...)
