Elephant Teamwork to Rescue Baby

This one’s a little scary, so I’m going to let you know in advance that the baby elephant does get rescued… I hope that doesn’t spoil the adventure for those watching, but I know we have lots of little ones who hang out here at Monalle and i didn’t want anyone getting too frightened…

The first time I saw this I was really moved, than as i watched it again i noticed a few things I didn’t see in first viewing… For instance, by the end of the rescue, 6 Elephants have joined in to make sure the little guy makes it out okay! Then at the very edge of the bog, he still can’t make it over the slippery mud and the momma elephant shovels dirt into the bog to help him get better footing…

It’s really touching to me how this whole elephant pack comes together to help the frightened little guy…There is something genuinely beautiful about this video that defies description, a certain feeling I’m left with, warm and confident in my brothers and sisters in our human animal kingdom…
