“So sweet and caring”, praised one netizen, “it reminds me of when my son was little, he would try to run to people to say ‘hi’ and I would make a big ‘hook’ to stop him”.


“They have an instinct to avoid people. But I think poaching has made this much more common,” said another. “This, in fact, is our fault.”


The mother elephant then kicked the calf of another family. Check out!
