Hope, a young elephant from a South Korea zoo, recently fell into a pool in her enclosure. What happens next is amazing! Elephants in the wild live in matriarchal family herds. They are very close knit and females join in to raise each other’s elephant calves. When Hope fell into her pool it was up to her mother and aunt to help save her. Watching the reactions of the older elephants is mind blowing. Not only did they rush in to save Hope, they logically figured out how to save her. Just goes to show that elephants are highly intelligent. Watch this dramatic video and see how Hope is saved by her elephant family. I would have to say, Hope was a well chosen name for this zoo inhabitant!
