As we have seen in many videos, elephants can be very protective of others of their kind, especially if babies are involved, but this video shows that they can watch over humans too. They never stop to amaze me!
The caretaker at this elephant sanctuary acted as if he was being attacked and you can not believe what Thongsri, the 17-year-old elephant did. He immediately ran to his rescue, chasing the attacker away and defending the person who takes care off him with his own body. He stayed there until he made sure that the man was okay.
Forget Pit Bulls and German Shepherds, this is one guard animal you don’t want to mess with.
