Heartbreaking moment elephant herd try to save calf injured by car
“I was in complete shock when I saw that this baby elephant had been knocked down by a speeding vehicle,” the woman explained for the LatestSightings.com. “With tearful eyes, I had to watch how the entire elephant family tried to help this little one without actually being able to do a thing.”
The safari guides have alerted the park’s rangers, and shortly after a rescue team arrived at the scene. But there wasn’t too much they can do. They wasn’t even able to get close to the calf as the herd didn’t let them.
“The elephant family didn’t want them being anywhere near the herd,” Haas said. “It was emotionally draining to watch and I never want to have to experience such a moment again. My last words to everyone who visits these magnificent Parks all over the world, please take care and don’t over speed as the loss of such a beautiful life as in this case is absolutely unnecessary.”
