When Push Comes to Shove, A Family of Elephants will Save the Day


As babies grow up, they tend to find themselves in sticky situations where their parents or others need to help them out. The baby elephant in the video manages to fall in the water trough on its back and hopelessly struggles to get back on its feet. The baby is wedged tightly in there and its mother can’t seem to get her baby out. To her dismay, there were lions close by, waiting to prey on the vulnerable baby elephant. She stomps around and wails for help, in hopes that her baby can be saved.

Just in the nick of time, another elephant family charges in and helps the mother and baby in their time of need. Half of the family works to scare the lions away, while the others try to get the baby elephant out of the water trough. But it is the matriarch of the other family that finally gets the baby elephant in a standing position. First she pulls the baby up and then uses her truck to nudge the baby forward and out of the trough. As soon as the baby elephant is freed, the mother elephant runs to her baby in relief.
