We very well know, the wild can be a very scary and unforgivable place for humans and all the animals that populate it. As far as this goes, it is very true. That is why we have been thought to stay away and be very careful when visiting such places.

Of course, if you're planing on a vacation that is based on a location such as the wild deserts, please do keep in mind to reserve your self a guide that will keep you safe and teach you the ropes of the wild. However, this video goes to show that the wild might not be as unforgiving as we all thought.

In a clip reminiscent of old-school western, a heroic elephant cries for help when her calf is attacked by wild dogs and in comes the cavalry! This has to be one of the most bone-chilling safari videos shot, showing how Africa’s most fearsome hunters are no match for the most devoted of mothers in the wild.

These wild dogs learned the hard way to not mess with elephants when a massive group of them emerged from the bushes to protect a baby elephant. The mother knows that one false move with these wild dogs could mean death for her young, so she does what ev4ery mother would do and calls for help!

Out of nowhere, the herd assembles in a cloud of dust, ready to charge, causing the dogs to call off their hunt. This astounding footage was shot by Dennis Browning, a landscape company owner from Johannesburg, RSA, during a recent holiday at Ingwelala.

This says a lot about the elephants species all together and how protective they can be of one another. Take a look!

    Never did see the "massive group." Fail.
