An elephant stuck in a hole is saved by tourists

A baby elephant was heroically rescued after getting stuck in a hole – but the tourists on safari who helped save it were later devastated to discover the same animal torn apart by hyenas days later.

In video dating from October 2014 from Chobe National Park in Botswana filmed by Czech national Pavel Merunko, the tourists enlist the help of some initially reluctant local rangers, who use heavy-duty chains to pull the elephant out of the hole – but only after they were paid 100 euros, according to Merunko.

He says the elephant was seven-years-old and weighed two tons.
