Veel spectaculaire foto's van de redding van een baby olifantje


Op 17 februari zagen passagiers van een trein in het district Goalpara dat een babyolifantje in een diepe kuil gleed, toen hij met zijn kudde het spoor overstak. Het dier worstelde om eruit te komen, maar dit lukte niet. De reizigers vroegen de conducteur de trein te laten stoppen, bleven bij het bange dier om hem kalm te houden en voerden hem bladeren.
Uiteindelijk kregen ze hem vereende krachten uit de kuil, door het olifantje omhoog te duwen tot hij weer houvast had. Het schijnt vaker voor te komen dat olifanten in de modder vast komen te zitten en hulp nodig hebben.

 This is the moment a baby elephant tumbled into a ditch as it tried to keep up with its herd. While the rest fled, this little animal slumped down a small hill under a railway track in Assam, India. Thankfully, the train came to a halt and dozens of passengers leaped out to help pull him to safety.
