They could barely see it.

A group of people was visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust reintroduction center at Ithumba in Kenya.

While they were interacting with the orphan elephants and former orphans at the water hole, they noticed a strange sound.

The elephants started to run away in fear—but the group realized it was just a buffalo calf that had become deeply stuck in the mud. Fortunately, help was on the way!
