Elephants are known for having a close bond with their family and are often seen roaming in herds with their younger ones. In a recent video, shared by an Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan, an elephant calf can be seen being rescued from a natural ditch by forest officials after the five-hour-long operation while the herd waits patiently few yards away. The location of the video is not known.
Today a very small elephant calf fell into a natural ditch inside the forest. Staff got alerted by sound. Herd tried best & then stood little far, which they usually do so that human helps. After 5 hours of work & struggle by calf he was finally rescued. Now back with family. pic.twitter.com/F8Y2LS1g4f— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) March 14, 2020
The video is now going viral on social media as it has garnered more than 29,000 views and has been liked over 2,800 times since it was shared on March 14. Netizens were left amazed by the intelligence showed by the calf's family during the rescue operation. Many took the opportunity to thank the forest officials who were involved in the process and successfully helped the calf come out of the ditch in the pitch dark of night.
The discipline of the herd standing away and watching the rescue is indeed a lesson for humans, as we at times make things chaotic by our indiscipline. The Intelligence of these gigantic beings is simply awesome.— Subbu (@subbu75) March 14, 2020

Elephants consider humans to be pets-like like we have our little pets.— Shreesha (@shreeshDot18) March 15, 2020
It is amazing how elephants have, over the years, learned to differentiate between friendly acts of humans and poachers / irresponsible tourists
