Rescuing a baby elephant

Rate this post

At the Amboseli National Park in Kenya, an 8-month-old baby elephant fell into a hole and couldn’t climb out. Mommy and baby were frantic.

Thankfully, a team of three from the Amboseli Trust for Elephants came to the rescue.

They first shooed away the two adult elephants. Then two young men patiently and painstakingly wound a rope around Baby, and the jeep then pulled Baby out.

Free at last, Baby ran across the dusty steppe to find Mom.

You’ll need a tissue for their joyous reunion.

  1. Beautiful!

     
  2. Is it unmanly to admit stuff like that gets me all choked up?

     
    • No!

      A real man is not cut off from his emotions. A real man has a soul and is kind and has empathy for others. I love you more because you have the manly self-confidence to admit you got all choked up!

       
  3. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this heartfelt post! I was gripped while the rescue was taking place and the rescuers are so kind and good! I loved when the mommy ran to her little one! Beautiful!

     
  4. Awwwww….I needed that!

     
  5. I don’t know about others, but I was exhausted by the time baby got out of the well. I felt like I’d worked really hard . . . trying to make it happen! Great, great film.
