An amazing story has come out of India of an elephant which was on a rampage through an Indian village. Reportedly the elephant virtually destroyed a house, but then heard a baby crying. The male elephant then did a complete about face and rescued the baby from the rubble.
The tale was told to The Times of India by the parents of the baby, Dipak Mahato and his wife Lalita. They say the elephant attacked their home in a village in the West Bengal district of Purulia.
“What’s really surprising is that this elephant left the little girl alive even after damaging the house. It seems to have a heart, too,” he added, saying that the elephant was last seen resting in Ghoshra forest on Tuesday evening.
