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.

    Never did see the "massive group." Fail.
