Baby Elephant Rescued From Well at Thai Golf Course

A baby elephant was rescued from a well in Chanthaburi, Thailand, on May 15 as its mother watched close by.

According to the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, the elephant calf fell into a two-meter-deep well at the Chatrium golf course on Monday morning.

Several volunteers, including staff from the Khao Soi Dao Wildlife Sanctuary, used machinery to dig around the well and free the baby elephant, according to the department.
