It is a commonly known fact that elephants are some of the most intelligent, emotionally developed creatures on the planet.
They forge family bonds that are just a strong and complex as the ones we create with our loved ones, and they experience loss just as profoundly as we do.
That’s why this dedicated elephant spent 11 hours digging a massive hole in the ground. Spectators gathered to figure out what she was doing, and when they realized what was going on, their hearts ached for her.
While she and her baby were out walking that day, the little one fell into a well and was unable to get out. Mom stepped into action and made it clear that she’d stop at nothing to save her baby.
