A mom’s love is true and giving, she’ll go the extra mile when her kid’s life’s at stake. This bond is found in humans and animals alike.
If you’re a regular on social media, chances are you’ve stumbled upon such heartwarming videos of moms going the extra mile for their kiddos.
Recently, a video has popped up on the web, showing a mother elephant stepping onto the road, seeking human aid for her calf.
In a clip posted on a YouTube channel called Nature and Heritage on April 11, 2022, a momma elephant seems to be pleading for help from people passing by.
At first sight, the bystanders were scared seeing the wild creature, but it was clear she meant no harm. The video goes on to show some locals trying to drive the creature away.
They even let off firecrackers, yet the mom stood her ground, hoping people would grasp she needed assistance.
As the video rolls on, the elephant is seen successfully guiding the helpers to a manhole her baby had tumbled into.
Promptly, the crowd began to carve out the mud near the hole to form a step-like structure to aid the baby elephant’s climb.
The clever youngster caught on and freed itself from the muddy pit, making a beeline for its waiting mom hidden in the woods.
Folks online were totally gobsmacked after watching the clip, flooding the comments with applause for those good samaritans who truly got the mom’s plight and lent a hand. They also shared some touching thoughts about how a mom’s love can be such a selfless thing.
