According to Adventure Journal and TreeHugger, a baby elephant did fall into a manmade well in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park. Fortunately a rescue squad from the Amboseli Trust came onto the scene to aid in the elephant calf’s misfortune — but not without having to confront and chase away the concerned mother, who didn’t seem to know that the humans were there to help, not harm:

After the ordeal, the calf gets reunited with its mother. Hopefully, they’ll remember that not all people pose a threat to their kind — especially if they recognize the Amboseli trucks. This should be the case, because, as they say, an elephant never forgets.
