Happy Saturday! If you're in a bad mood (why would you be, it's the weekend!), you should check out this here video. In Kenya, a baby elephant got stuck in a hole and couldn't get out! Without help or assistance, the adorable creature surely would have been doomed.
Of course, the entire amazing rescue of the elephant at a Kenyan national park was caught on video (do we even say "film" anymore?). Footage shows how the rescuers had to scare off the protective mother elephant and use a Land Rover and some rope to get the baby out of the five-foot-deep hole.
And what happens when the rescuers are successful will just FLOOR you. It's one of the most heartwarming reunions I've ever seen.
Here it is!
Amazing. After driving the mother off, the rescuers were able to get a rope around the elephant and use the SUV to pull the poor thing out. This entire incident took place on October 8 but has finally started making the Internet rounds. And you can see why!
I can't get over the reunion between the mom and baby at the very end. Doesn't it make you want to quit your job and join these rescuers? If you really do want to help out (residents at the park dig these wells, and if the rescuers raise enough funds, they can elephant-proof them), head on over to the Amboseli Trust for Elephants website and donate whatever you can!
Is this one of the best videos you've seen today or what?
