Wildlife team rescues a baby elephant from dying in a well
So, this baby elephant fell into a well, a very deep and big well to be precise. How did it even fall into it in the first place? The reason is quite obvious because these elephants are always looking out for water sources where ever they go.
The wildlife rescue team brought a caterpillar to pave a way for the baby elephant to go through but somehow the baby elephant refused to follow the path created by the caterpillar. What should be the next action? Well, since the baby elephant has decided not to take the path, two men went down the well to push out the baby elephant by putting a rope on the neck of the baby elephant in order to push it out. The baby elephant got scared because of his close encounter with the humans. Seeing that the baby elephant refuses to come up, more men went down the well to join the other men to pull the baby elephant out, the same thing also happened – not willing to go but as you know it’s just a baby elephant and the number has it.
The men forced it and they were able to push the baby elephant out of the well through the path created by the caterpillar. Coming out was not easy as the path seemed to be slippery but they managed to rescue the baby elephant.
The people took the elephant for a short walk while walking they showed the baby elephant love and affection even though the baby elephant still has the rope around its neck.

Some of the men massaged the head and trunk of the baby elephant with their hands just to show the baby elephant they mean no harm. I think the baby elephant got to realize that, too. When the pick-up that will take the elephant to the orphanage came, the baby elephant was not willing to go just like what happened inside the well. But just like the men did there, they carried the baby elephant and put it in the pick-up and no struggle was seen anymore though the baby elephant tried to get out at first but was calmed by the wildlife team.
The people followed the baby elephant to the point where they put it in the pick-up and waited till the pick-up zoomed off. The wildlife officers rescued the baby elephant from the hunters around that are willing to waste this beautiful life. They will take this orphan to the elephant orphanage for daily care. I believe with this act of kindness demonstrated by this wildlife rescue team, the memory will forever live in the heart of the baby elephant, and. Things like this should keep on happening to save the elephant, to save the wildlife and the world of the animal.
