Angry Mama Elephant Just Ruins the Day for This Pack of Wild DogsThe Rainforest Site
Talk about maternal instincts! When a pack of wild dogs snaps at an elephant calf’s heels, this elephant mom says “Enough is enough!” Fed up with the pesky pack’s harassing.
She decides it’s time for some action and charges headlong into them while her calf stays safely behind her. The idea of being stamped under the feet of of a 1,000-pound tusker doesn’t appeal to the dogs apparently, and they scatter and run for their lives.
This just goes to show that there is almost nothing that can keep a mother elephant from protecting her precious offspring. Seeing this happen in the wild is just such a treat!
Check out the video below and watch this devoted mom.
