A video of a couple of park rangers reuniting an elephant calf with its hard in Kenya is winning hearts on the internet. The video, which was shared on Twitter by journalist Yashar Ali shows how park rangers use a vehicle to reunite the elephant calf with its herd.
“A fun fact about elephants. Baby elephants will instinctually follow large moving objects. So when rangers or vets want to get a wild baby elephant to go somewhere, they will often just drive and the baby follows,” Ali wrote, sharing the video.
Take a look at the video here:

I love that baby elephants know their names and run to caregivers for their special diets.

Surprised it was separated from the herd. I thought they kept them corralled pretty well. But I have kids and get it. 😆
