There is nothing as powerful as a mother’s love in the world, and moms from the animal kingdom are the same. Fortunately for us, the internet brings us inspiring true stories of mother’s love in the animal kingdom, and the fascinating story today is one of them.
It is a heart-breaking moment when a mother elephant spent 11 hours helplessly trying to pull her baby free from a muddy well before villagers lend her a helping hand.
The persistent mom refuses to leave her calf, first using her trunk and then her feet to try to pull her precious baby to safety. Unfortunately, the hopeless mother elephant ended up pushing more mud into the well making the situation worse.
Fortunately, kind-hearted villagers living near the Chatra district in India rushed to the scene after hearing the distressed cries. They were able to stop the mother and remove some of the mud stopping her from grabbing the calf.
Jitendra Tiwari, who recorded the video and rescued aides, said: “We cut a couple of banana trucks and put it near the well for the elephant to move for a while.”
“The plan was a success, and we took the time to remove the sand that was deposited near the well, which made it difficult for her to rescue the baby.”
The mother then wrapped her trunk softly around the baby’s slippery, muddy body and pulled the baby out. In the end, the tiny elephant was finally freed.
The duo was later seen entwining trunks and happily walking side-by-side as they continued their journey.
