A pack of wild dogs saw a young calf who had separated from the herd along with its mother and another elephant. Sensing an easy kill, the pack tried to attack the young calf several times, undeterred by the trumpeting and charging of the mother.

This story isn’t the only example of elephants working to protect their young. Watch how the herd helps this little calf when he gets stuck in a water hole.
