Watch a village rescue an upside down elephant

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.15.25 PMIt took a whole village to rescue this upside down elephant. A young male had fallen into a ditch back down and was dug in there. Enter a team of IFAW Animal Rescue Workers with shovels, who dig around the little big guy until he had enough room to right himself by rolling over. While they worked, residents of the nearby village turned out to watch from tree perches and surrounding terrain.

When he is able to rise to his feet, the little guy heads off for the jungle … ambling … the way elephants do.
