Elephants Run To Say Hello To A Rescued Baby Elephant, Prove They Are Better Than People

A video showing the whole elephant herd running to greet a rescue baby elephant is going viral, and for obvious reasons. The short clip filmed at Elephant Nature Park shows 1 year and 9-months-old orphan elephant Dok Gaew who receives the warmest welcome ever. They can surely teach us a thing or two about friendliness, empathy, and co-existing in peace.

These wonderful creatures are known for their gentle nature and enormous physical strength. They are matriarchal, i.e. females are the ones who run the world in the elephant kingdom. Oh, and they are herbivores, which means they don’t kill for food or just because they want to. And did we mention they don’t harm the planet as humans do?

Let’s be more like elephants, shall we?

I agree. Most of them are being murdered for their ivory, and its horrible. These critters, especially Asian elephants, are very intelligent and more friendly than their African cousins.

Elizabeth, are you saying that a family of human mothers would not do exactly the same thing? And if you say that you "ain’t saying elephants are better than humans" then why do you state this in your title?

You're absolutely right. When the first group of Nigerian girls was returned to Chibok, one mother wrapped her daughter as she did when she was a baby & carried her grown daughter on her back. All the mothers were excited.
