    Personally, I need to see and read more stories like this. Too much horrendous acts of cruelty being shown towards animals both domesticated and wild, that often shake my faith in humanity. Beautiful baby, beautiful people for helping it, and beautiful story!

    I hope he was returned to his herd and not to "captive safety".

    But WHY is there no photo of him out of that ditch? Did they REALLY save him??

  7. There are NO pictures of the elephant freed from the ditch. Looks like people came just to gawk at the elephant. I dont think he was saved
