A viral video from a while ago is doing the rounds again. It shows a cute elephant cub getting away from its herd to help a man, even though the man doesn’t require much rescuing.
The bond between humans and wild animals may seem conflicting but sometimes we come across heart-warming situations hat suggest otherwise.
In this particular situation an adorable baby elephant – identified as Kham Lha – is seen grazing on the banks among the river along with other elephants when she catches glimpse of her favourite human Darrick in the river. Thinking that he might be drowning the little one rushing into the water to save him, however, the video clearly shows that Darrick was swimming fine. But what happens next when Kham Lha comes closer and hold Darrick by her trunk will melt your heart.
The video shows Darrick thanking her and the duo hugging each other in joy. The special bond is absolutely adorable and asserts that even wild beast reacts to love in the cutest way.
The tiny cub resides in Thailand’s Elephant Nature Park that is the home to several rescued elephants from tourism industry and other trades.
The baby elephant was brought to the park in 2015 and the special bond her and Darrick have always gained attention.
