See What A Desperate Mother Elephant Did After Her Calf Got Trapped In A Well. Photos

This is the dramatic moment villagers rescued a young elephant from a construction well after its mother stood by her baby throughout the night. The calf got trapped while a herd of more than 60 elephants passed through a stretch of the Ramgarh district in India. Throughout Wednesday night the mother relentlessly kept trumpeting and tried to pull the calf out.

As she kept trying and continued wailing the whole night, a herd of eight tuskers remained on standby. And for the duration of the night the villagers of Sutri also remained wide awake, praying the herd would return to the nearby forest without causing any destruction. As daylight broke people started gathering near the well, and the mother elephant made a peaceful retreat and joined the herd waiting behind the bushes. Moved by her plight, a few brave and kind-hearted people decided to help.
