The men approached the tiny elephant cautiously. As they got closer, they realized she seemed terribly thirsty, so they let her drink from one of their own water bottles.
And even though the men scanned the horizon, neither the baby's mother nor his herd was anywhere in sight.
The truck drivers knew they had to do something more than just give the roughly 3-week-old elephant a drink of water. So they loaded her into their truck and, after the bridge was fixed, they dropped her off at a nearby sanctuary, Elephant Sands.
