Never in my life have I done something that seemed as meaningful as this baby elephant rescue (Video)

The heroes at the Amboseli Trust for Elephants rescued this 8-month-old calf earlier this week, while I was probably eating Fritos or something.

    UUmmm…. Wrong video?

  • Turbo

    The right video…

  • Taylor

    I'm not gonna lie, this brought tears of joy to my eyes.

  • Jay

    Cool video getting it back to its mom and all… But I still just don't particularly care for elephants…

    • thorsky

      That's nice Jay — perhaps you should consider killing yourself then.

      • thorsky's a jerk

        wow thorsky, look in the mirror once in a while, bud. The man just said he doesn't like elephants, didn't diss on the video or anything or make a nasty joke. I'm not fond of cats … I guess I better consider killing myself then.

        • kill yourself

          don't consider it, do it

      • Lol

        Pure sociopath.

        P.S: Elephants aren't that great if they cant get out of a little hole. lol.

    • Jay's Mom

  • Tiff

    I got some eye sweats. The cheesy soundtrack added to it.

  • Meh

    That little elephant can haul ass when it means getting reunited with Mom! Did you see the dust trail that thing was kicking up?

    Well done, Amboseli Elephant Trust folks!

  • Tucker

    That little guy was cruzinnnn

  • ScottishYankee

    Damn it Chive…whats up with adding dust to all the videos/stories you guys post? And where the hell is the Kleenex in this house??

  • Chopsuey

    Part of the reason it took so long is because they let the women drive. I notice she got lost a couple times.

    • dreez

      classic mistake

  • Ben

    Proof that animals have emotions!

    • Atom819

      who said they didn't? lol

  • !!!

    Damn, got something stuck in my eye again…

  • cels0_o

    Awesome vid but it was hilarious seeing the baby running. Not sure why but that made me laugh so hard.

  • freudianslipdress

    So dusty in here!

  • Jerry

    It looked like the bull was trying to back up so the calf could pull itself out with his trunk to the bull's tail, until the group of cars came along and pushed him out of there.

    Amazing. Needed a smile today.

  • TheDude

    Sometimes you gotta let mother nature do her thing.

    There easily could have been 3 dead heroes if those adults elephants got real upset.

    • dreez

      Did that hole look natural to you? It didnt to me.

      • Tim Paprika

        Should have just filled the hole in instead of trying to cowboy the elephant out of there.

      • Lol

        1. Dig hole
        2. Have small elephant fall in.
        3.???
        4. Profit!
