Elephant Struggles to Bring Calf to Life Following BirthMadeline Holler
An incredible video making it’s way around shows an elephant giving birth at Indonesia’s Elephant Safari Park in Taro, Bali. The birth itself is, perhaps, NSFW — and also probably not safe for lunch — but that’s just the first couple of minutes.
The rest of the 6-minute video shows the mother — and experienced birther — getting panicky that her calf isn’t breathing. Watch her wrap her trunk around the calf’s trunk and try to shake some life into the lifeless body. Incredible.
Did you cheer a little, too? What drama! Happy birthday, Riski.
