WATCH: Herd of elephants protect baby from wild dogs

Safari Live recently delivered an incredible bit of wildlife footage when they captured a pack of wild dogs attempting to hunt a baby elephant. Streamed live to the world, the video begins with Brent Leo-Smith following the pack as they close in on a tiny elephant.

Fortunately, the herd notices and their protective instincts kick in revealing that it’s not just human parents who will do anything to keep their babies safe.

While Leo-Smith admits he has never heard of wild dogs attacking elephants before, the elephants are not taking any chances as they treat the pack just as they would a pride of lions.
