Elephant Herd Watches As Keepers Rescue Drowning Calf

One muddy misstep and the baby elephant slipped into a pool of water. Unable to get out on its own – and the herd unable to help as the bank was too slippery – elephant keepers at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust came to the rescue. 

The rescue took place in Tsavo East National Park in Kenya. Facebook/The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Although the elephants displayed aggressive behavior by making it clear they were prepared to charge, once a backup vehicle was able to cordon off the area, the keepers were quickly able to pull the baby up the bank via straps.
