Elephant Spent 11 Hours Digging A Hole, But Nobody Expected Her To Pull Out This Out

Elephants don’t always receive the credit that they deserve for their intelligence and compassion. They are some of the most amazing creatures that have ever walked the planet and to be perfectly honest with you, we are blessed to even share the terrain with them. A story like this one serves as a valuable reminder that these animals are far more intuitive than we realize.

There is a common misconception that they are big and plodding creatures who do not process emotion. Their size belies the deep feelings that they experience and when this mother elephant was facing one of the most challenging and heartbreaking situations that any parent can ever go through. While some thought that she was digging this hole for the sake of digging, the truth is much more heartbreaking.

When this mother’s calf fell into a well, she was not willing to leave the child behind and we commend her commitment to rescuing her baby. She started to dig the hole with the use of her trunk and utilized her feet to finish the process. Unfortunately, the mother did not realize that she was only exacerbating the problem by pushing more mud into the hole.

Little did she know that she was slowly smothering the child and keeping the hole from being dug properly. The baby became trapped at 9 PM and this determined mama kept digging throughout the night and was still digging at 8 AM the next morning. We cannot even begin to imagine the sort of strength and determination that this elephant had to muster in order to sustain that kind of effort for that long.

Once the people who lived in this area heard the distress cries that were coming from this mother and her baby, they rushed to the scene immediately to offer much needed aid. Would you like to find out more about how this story played out? If so, you are going to want to check out this awesome clip for yourself. We do not wish to ruin the ending, but suffice it to say that this mother’s efforts were certainly not in vain.

If you love animal rescues as much as we do, then be sure to watch this clip in its entirety and pass it along to the other animal lovers in your life. They will definitely this mama elephant and all of the hard work that she put in.

Two men try saving an injured hammerhead, but have no idea the shark is hiding a secret

To make matters even worse, the shark was in the process of giving birth when the fishermen caught her. They were at a local pier when the shark was hooked on their line and it took them several hours to successfully wrestle the line. Once they had finished pulling the hammerhead to safety, they knew that they had a tall task ahead o them: they were going to have to save the shark, as well as her babies.

When the hammerhead was turned over, the fishermen noticed that she had a bite wound on her underside and from the looks of it, the mother had tried to deliver the babies on her own. However, she did not have the strength to carry out this task without assistance. The fishermen got to work immediately and in time, they had rescued 20 baby sharks and released them back into the waters.

Unfortunately, the mother shark ended up succumbing to her wounds and was unable to survive this harrowing ordeal. While this is obviously a sad occurrence, we are sure that this mother shark would thank the fishermen for saving her babies if she had the ability to do so. Did you know that the hammerhead is a ovoviviparous animal? This means that their babies are born completely functional.

Typically, a mother shark prefers to give birth in locations that are sheltered and offer them an abundance of food (in addition to protection from various predators). The men who saved these babies are hopeful that their actions have provided them with the ability to enjoy a long and healthy life, despite the fact that they were unable to save the mother shark.

The hammerhead shark just so happens to be an endangered species, so the actions of these men are even more important than you might think. If this rescue effort meant as much to you as it did us, then be sure to watch this amazing video and share it with your friends and family members as soon as possible.
