    Forest rangers have a fascinating life. But they have to be constantly on the alert for all kinds of difficulties and dangers - from poachers to ill health - which may threaten the wild animals in their care. In such circumstances it's not unusual for them to develop tremendous affection for the creatures.

    Footage tweeted by the Indian Forest Service's Association shows a heartbreaking scene of a ranger crying bitterly at the death of an elephant.

    The tweet read that some emotions are difficult to be expressed in words, and can only be felt.

    This forest officer was the elephant's caretaker, known as its mahout, and was greatly attached to it. He is seen bidding farewell to the magnificent creature one last time before it is taken away by other forest rangers to be cremated.
