Sometimes animals find themselves in a sticky spot and need the help of humans to get out of them. That’s why rescue videos can always make one smile and be hopeful. One such rescue video from Kenya featuring two female elephants has gone viral and the efforts will make you say wow repeatedly.
Shared on Instagram by Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the video shows two elephants stuck helplessly in the mud near a watering hole. “For these two females, a simple drink turned into a death trap. It is an all-too-common situation during a drought: In their quest for water, elephants venture into drying dams and become stuck in the mud. Confronted with slick floors and sticky terrain, they are unable to propel themselves to standing. Without help, it becomes a lethal situation,” explains the caption.
“These elephants had been stuck for at least two days before they were discovered. But this story has a happy ending: In a joint operation with KWS and Wildlife Works, we were able to free them both,” it added.
Take a look:
The video has over 70k likes and many reactions. Netizens whole-heartedly thanked the rescue team that worked tirelessly to free the jumbos stuck in the mud. Many also enquired about the health of the rescued beings.
