Elephant Calf Refuses To Leave Mother Who Died Trying To Save Him

Uploaded by: xmodel


It is a sight that highlights the increasing man-animal conflict in India. An elephant calf in Assam mourned the death of his mother and refused to leave her side. On Wednesday morning, the calf had run out of an elephant herd towards a construction site in Assams Sonitpur district and was followed by his mother and another elephant calf. The mother elephant, who suffered injuries after falling in the pit, died 19 hours later on Thursday. While one calf was able to come out of the pit, the other stayed with the mothers body, and had to be rescued by locals.Watch more videos videoytDownload the NDTV news app
