Elephant Rushes Over To Help Her Caretaker When She Thinks He's Being Attacked

The old saying goes that dogs are man's best friend, but one elephant in Thailand may be giving our barking buddies a run for their money.

The 17-year-old elephant named Thongsri was just enjoying a sunny day at an elephant sanctuary when one of the workers started fooling around with her caretaker, pretending to mug him. That's when the giant elephant rushed to her caretaker's rescue in the most incredible way.


I feel like we should just have amazing elephants running around and fighting crime. This smart girl clearly knows the difference between right and wrong! Imagine elephants and police officers joining forces. How epic would that be?
