Okay, today's video starts out a little gooey. It is a birth, after
all. But what happens after this is quite heartwarming--and very human. This video, from The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, displays a rare daylight birth of a baby elephant:
See how they surround the newborn to not only protect him (or her), but to also offer support in standing and walking? It is behavior like this in these fine animals that makes me admire them so. And makes me want to give poachers a taste of their own medicine. All I would need is a tranquilizer gun and a pair of pliers.
