A viral video circulating on social media shows the dramatic rescue of a young elephant from a muddy pit in Karnataka's Hassan district. The jumbo, searching for food and water, left his herd and strayed into Madihalli village, which falls in the district's elephant corridor. As he wandered into agricultural land, the young elephant suddenly fell into a swampy, muddy pit. See how he was rescued.
