Mother Spends 11 Hours Rescuing Baby Elephant Stuck in Well
This is the heart-wrenching moment a mother elephant desperately tried to pull her baby from a well. The determined mum refused to leave her calf, staying with the youngster for 11 hours, first using her trunk and then her feet in a bid to haul her precious baby to safety. Unfortunately, the frantic mother elephant made matters worse by accidentally pushing more mud into the well and almost smothering the baby, which was trapped from 9 pm until 8 am the following morning. But thankfully the tiny elephant was eventually freed when people living near the Chatra district in India, where the incident happened, rushed to the scene after hearing the distressed cries.
In the end, thankfully this baby elephant was saved and there was a happy ending. An elephant is the favorite animal to many people, as well as many young children.

Јitendra Tiwari, who filmed the drama and helped with the rescue, said: 'We chopped off a few banana trucks and put it near the well so that the mother elephant moved away for some time.
'The plan worked, and we used the time to remove the heap of sand deposited near the well that was making it difficult for her to rescue the baby.' In the end, this story had a happy ending, and the mother and her child left together safe and sound.
Elephants are the most beloved animals in the world and the largest land animals. Male elephants can grow up to 13 feet (3 meters), and they are highly intelligent mammals.
The trunk of the elephant has 16 muscles, and there are likewise a vast number of little muscle fascicles, or packs of muscle strands, that take into consideration better developments of the storage compartment.
Because of their weight, they are not able to jump, but they can run fast. Elephants can run at a maximum speed of 25 miles (40 km) per hour. They have wrinkled skin but soft skin, and they take mud baths so they would moisturize their skin. Just like an excellent day at the spa!
