A BABY bull elephant has been rescued after falling into a well at a copper mine. Video footage shows staff at the Phalaborwa Copper mine in South Africa’s Limpopo Province franticly pull the calf out of a small dam of water on February 16. The visibly stressed elephant is eventually pulled out of the well by the heroic staff members. It is believed the calf may have fallen into the well and been left by its herd after it couldn’t escape.

      Praying he survives and lives to a happy, ripe old age!! So sad the herd didn't accept him back into the herd. :'(
