The story of a newborn elephant being saved by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has gone viral.
Many videos about elephants go viral on social media every day, and they attract a lot of attention from Netizens.
A newborn elephant’s rescue video is currently making the rounds on the internet.
This occurred at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, and it was filmed, and posted online by the organization.
A calf got itself trapped inside a water trough by mistake, so it was unable to escape. The newborn calf was trapped inside while its relatives congregated around the water trough, “visibly distressed,” and tried everything they could to save the infant.
Soon after, a team of concerned officials rushed to the scene and successfully rescued the calf.
Sheldrick Wildlife Trust shared the video of the rescued animal with the caption, “This incident unfolded just outside our Ithumba stockades earlier this year.
It was nearing midnight when we realized something was amiss: A small herd of elephants was clustered around the water trough, visibly distressed.
Focusing our eyes against the darkness, we saw that a newborn calf was stuck inside. While all our troughs are designed to prevent this very situation from happening, she had defied engineering, and despite their best efforts, her family was unable to extricate her.”
