Usually wild animals are best left alone, and it’s better for humans to not interfere with them. But when park rangers found six elephants separated from their parents and unable to get out of a mud pit, they stepped up to save the day and get them free.
According to a Facebook post, park rangers in park rangers in Thap Lan National Park, in Thailand, discovered six young elephant calfs that were trapped in mud pits.
It was apparent that a herd of wild elephants had passed through the area when the young ones got stuck, and the adult elephants were waiting for the calfs, but they were unable to get out of the mud by themselves.
The park rangers then decided to get involved and help the elephants get out of the mud.
However, they couldn’t do anything immediately: they didn’t have the right equipment on them, and it was getting late. So instead, one of the rangers kept an eye on the elephants overnight, and they returned the next morning with the gear.
Using the equipment the park rangers dug a ramp so the elephants were able to climb out of the mud pit.
All six climbed out, all safe and in good condition, and they rejoined their herd.
And it was all thanks to these park rangers who went above-and-beyond to help.
We’re so glad these elephants are safe! Thank you to these park rangers who went out of the way to help them get to safety!
