This story reminded me of the one that Catherine Behrendt brought up on WZZM 13's Take Five and Company a couple weeks ago.  Small pockets of legislature around the country are trying to rule in or rule out the use of elephant hooks.  Another argument for why they have to STOP being used on these intelligent, caring, loving animals.  For me, and so many others I have spoken to enjoy just seeing an elephant at a Circus or State Fair.  That's exciting enough!  It's not an everyday thing:-)  Their mere presense, in all their majestic beauty, and kids and adults alike, would be mesmerized. 

Well, here is the story of a mother elephant, seeing her baby in distress and saving the little ones life.  The mishap happened in a steep-sided pool in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
