Elephant Rescue


There are times when you see stories that should be made into a movie. This is one of them.

There are so many of us within the GOP who are basically ill over the developments within the party.  This is one of the most beautiful stories I’ve seen in ages.  The South Luangwa Conversation Society stepped in to help rescue a mommy elephant after she was stuck in the mud, trying to rescue baby.  Both would have died if it were not for some helping hands.

“…Rachel McRobb, part of the rescue team from the South Luangwa Conservation Society, said: ‘Most conservationists believe that man should not meddle with the natural order and that we should allow nature to run her course however cruel or grim it seems to be.

‘We agree on the whole, unless a wildlife problem has been created by man (for instance in the case of snaring or being trapped in a fence, in which case it’s justifiable to intervene) then nature should be left to her own devices. She has a plan.

‘However – every rule has an exception and the dreadful plight of a baby elephant trapped in the mud of the Kapani Lagoon and her mother, who had also got stuck trying to save her yesterday had us all in a frenzy of activity.

‘We simply could not stand by and watch them struggle and slowly die.’ Before the rescue by workers from conservation society, Kapani Lodge and Norman Carr Safaris the mother and calf’s herd tries to rescue the pair.

When they are unable to do anything, the team – along with members of the Zambian Wildlife Authority – moves in while the herd waits on the other side of some trees.
At one point, the calf appears to be calling for help while his mother appears resigned to her fate before the rescue gets under way…”

With luck they will all live happily ever after.
