There is a common expression; it takes a village to raise a child. For elephants it’s not just a saying but a way of life. One calf was stuck in a waterhole, unable to get up and out. The mother tried to pull her baby out but it was covered in mud, making the climb more challenging. Female elephants live in a herd of six to 12 members where they help each other take care of the young, find food, and protect themselves and others from outside dangers. Scientists believe elephants communicate through sounds not audible to humans. This may help to explain how a more experienced female with the rest of herd shows up to help the distraught babe out. Watch this rescue video captured in Kruger National Park in South Africa.
