Baby Elephant Rescue

via Mashable

A lovely story of a rescue of a baby elephant stuck in a hole.

The Amboseli Trust for Elephants played hero to a calf and his mother by rescuing the young elephant from a well in Kenya. Three employees from the nonprofit conservation organization coordinated the effort, using their vehicles to chase the mother away before attempting to lift the hefty baby from the ditch.

Footage of the rescue shows the three-month-old pachyderm trumpeting distress sounds as two men try to extract him from the hole using a rope, a truck and a bit of ingenuity.

After the rescue, the group helped reunite the baby elephant with his mom.
