Trending Video Shows Baby Elephant’s Love

Posted: Updated:

A trending Youtube video shows an unusual portrayal of heartbreak when a baby elephant refused to leave his mother’s side after she died in Kenya.

Several groups including the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Kenya Wildlife Service, and Save the Elephants had been watching the mom, Cherie, as she fought for her life.

On the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust YouTube page, the group said Cherie died of a stomach infection in April; her six-month-old was beside her the entire time.

The video has gotten more than 30, 000 views since it was uploaded on April 23. See the full clip here.
