Perhaps it’s because nearly every American watched Disney‘s animated classic Dumbo as a kid that we all seem to have a very special place in our hearts for elephants, especially baby ones. 

That’s what makes this latest video from elephant research and conservation project Amboseli Trust for Elephants that has started to trend now so special.

An eight month old calf became stuck in a shallow well with his mom nearby who was becoming visibly ever more frustrated not being to save her baby. 

Luckily, the the Trust got word of the issue and sent two jeeps to check out the situation. After some hard work they were successful. 

There are few things cuter than seeing a baby elephant run full speed after mom. “Moooom! Wait for meee!”
