On Monday, a video went viral on social networking platforms in India showing how a mother elephant thanked a group of people after they rescued her baby from a deep jungle pit.
The two-minute video, showing a mama-elephant saluting humans in gratitude with her trunk up-high near a waterfall, was posted on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan.
Best you will watch today. An #elephant calf fell into a ditch which was rescued. And see how mother stopped to thank the people. This is typical behaviour, elephants first try to rescue by their own, then leave space & stand far for getting help from Human. Via WA so quality. pic.twitter.com/rPx1EN9UIB— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) November 11, 2019
In the caption, Kaswan also explained how it is typical behaviour for elephants to first try to rescue on their own and upon failure, stand afar and seek help from humans.
The video evoked an overwhelming responses from netizens.
