Incredible Footage Shows Mother Elephant Keeping Hungry Lions Away From Her Baby

Elephants are known for sharing intense familial bonds, especially when it comes to their babies.

One mother elephant recently proved she’d do anything to protect her calf when he got stuck inside in a water trough in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. A group of lions had gathered nearby, likely in pursuit of the struggling calf — but she and the rest of her herd teamed up to make sure the predators wouldn’t be able to touch the little one.

After trying and failing to save her calf, the mother bravely charged in the lions’ direction, hoping to scare them off.
