Exclusive footage shared by Latest Sightings shows how an elephant herd tries desperately to help a baby elephant that was knocked down by a speeding vehicle, at Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.

Heidi Haas, who captured the video says “I was in complete and utter shock when I saw that this baby elephant had been knocked down by a speeding vehicle. The entire elephant family tried to help this little one without actually being able to do a thing. There was literally no more that could be done as the elephant had broken its leg and its back.”

The rangers were called in urgently to come and assist. There was little else they could do than put this young elephant out of its misery. 

“To everyone who visits these magnificent Parks all over the world, please take care and don’t over speed as the loss of such a beautiful life as in this case is absolutely unnecessary!” adds Haas.
