It took several hours for the villagers to rescue the calf, but they didn't give up.
An elephant calf found itself in a sticky situation when it fell down a 30 ft well in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu.
The 3-and-a-half-month-old calf got separated from its herd and wandered off in the village. Presumably, due to a lack of estimation of the depth, the calf fell inside the well.
