A golden nugget of information — I am in love with elephants. Anyone who knows me well enough will also know about my secret passion for these softhearted beasts. They have such sweet souls and the cheekiest of bums. So naturally, when I saw this video of a baby elephant getting rescued, my heart broke into little pieces (and then reassembled with joy.) Its been a wide-range of emotions kind of morning.
The video shows the amazing crew of Amboseli Trust for Elephants rescuing an eight-month-old calf from a hole in the ground. The woman featured in the video does some sort of wild elephant call to push the baby’s mother away from the scene. Funny but not so funny, these passionate animal rescuers made the video that much more thrilling. At least now I know how to rescue a baby elephant should the opportunity arise. (It will.)
