Baby Elephant Rescue Is Your Who’s Chopping Onions Video of the DayBy: Josh Wolford - October 18, 2012
What did you do today? Because these people pulled a baby elephant out of a well and reunited it with its mom.
The group is the Amboseli Trust for Elephants and this is the best animal-related video you’ll see all week.
“We rescued this young eight months old calf early this week. Luckily the report came in early in the morning and we were able to get there quick before the mother was forced to leave by herders arriving to water their cattle. It was a happy ending as we were able to reunite the calf with her mother,” says ATE.
