Animals are more human than humans themselves and we can learn a lot from them. Recently, we came across a video of a baby elephant trying to save a man that he thought was drowning and this clip is a testimony to what we just said.
The video that we are talking about was shared by Twitter user, StanceGrounded with the caption, “My heart. This baby elephant thought he was drowning and rushed to save him. We really don’t deserve them.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

The now-viral video shows a herd of elephants strolling by a river, when suddenly a man appears in the frame who seems to be enjoying a swim in the water.
One of the baby elephants thinks that the man is drowning and rushes to save him. The man, though scared at first tries to swim away from the baby elephant but later realises his intention.
The baby elephant then very sweetly comes and protects the man from the current of the water and the man can be heard saying thankyou to the elephant.
This is the best thing that we have seen on the internet today. It is not just us, but Twitter thinks so too.
And these caring creatures are the ones the Trump family hunts so they can hold up a tail.
No trophy hunting.

It’s sad when animals often show more love and compasion for humanity than we do… think about that!

Animals have far more compassion and understanding than humans. They have a complex range of emotions, but somehow don’t have a lot of the negative ones we do like judgment, self pity, hatred, etc.

Then did you know that the same part of an elephant’s brain lights up on a scan when they look at us, as when we look at puppies? So, they think we are just cute little biscuits, and don’t want to see us hurt

Dammit we so don’t deserve to share a planet with them

Elephants are among the most intelligent and beautiful animals on earth and deserve our respect.
