World Elephant Day: Video of this Elephant Family trying to save its Baby from Fierce River Current will give you Goosebumps
On the occasion of World Elephant Day today, a video has been doing the rounds across Social Media where an Elephant Family gave it all to rescue their youngest member from the strong river currents.
On the internet, umpteen videos go viral every second but rarely do we witness one which touches our hearts and gives us goosebumps. On the occasion of World Elephant Day today, a video has been doing the rounds across Social Media where an Elephant Family gave it all to rescue their youngest member from the strong river currents.
While crossing a river stream from one end to the other, while other members of an elephant tribe were able to do that seamlessly, a baby elephant could not fight the strong river flow and started flowing along with the current. Seeing that, one elephant, probably the mother ran towards the baby to prevent it from flowing. When her attempts started getting futile over the flow of current, other members of the tribe joined in and saved the youngest member of the tribe.
Although the video has been doing the rounds recently, this video is from 2020, near the Ewase Nyiro River in Kenya, where after a heavy rain, a strong current emerged, which almost swept up a six-month-old baby elephant, until his mom stepped in, and later all the members of the tribe stepped in.
On the occasion of World Elephant Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter and wrote, "On #WorldElephantDay, reiterating our commitment to protect the elephant. You would be happy to know that India houses about 60% of all Asian elephants. The number of elephant reserves has risen in the last 8 years. I also laud all those involved in protecting elephants.
