Mother’s Love: This Elephant Spent 11 Hours Digging Her Baby Out of a Well

Mothers will do anything to protect their children and this Asian elephant is no exception. She was struggling to get her baby out of the deep well in Chatra, India.


A few villagers came to the spot only to see the mommy elephant frantically trying to rescue her calf, but unfortunately all she managed to do is to push more dirt into the hole. The elephant mom kept on digging for 11 hours- she refused to give up on her baby boy.

Luckily, the villagers distracted the mother with a truck full of bananas and removed all the sand so that the mother can pluck her calf out with her trunk.

See the incredible video showing the baby elephant rescue!
