Elephants love playing in mud and water, but sometimes things get a bit
out of control.  In this case, this poor pachyderm got in a little over
his... trunk.

When found trapped in the mud pit by farmers (who estimated that the elephant had been there for roughly 12 hours), they contacted wildlife conservationists.  Efforts to free the animal were not successful--until somebody called in a construction crew.

This is how things should work.  A little bit of thought and a lot of empathy saved this beautiful creature's life.
