This story of an intense elephant rescue will have you on the edge of your seat. On the Shangrala website, they detail each step of the rescue and the amazing conclusion.
“Conservation workers, who normally have a policy of leaving nature to fend for itself as much as possible, could not sit by and let a mother elephant and her calf die horribly from being stuck in a mud lagoon.”
The calf was crying out. There was nothing they could do.
But then wildlife officials showed up with some rope, hoping it would be enough to pull them out.
They got the baby out on the first attempt, but the baby just ran back to her mother. She got stuck again.
The baby started to cry out again. She wouldn’t leave the mud without her mother.
Almost free for a second time, the baby tried running back to mom.
The team did everything they could to try and keep the baby from going back into the mud.
They decided to try for the calf one more time. You know what they say about the third time…
