One Big Push
No matter how much this baby elephant struggled, he couldn’t free himself of the mud’s grasp. As the herd prepared to keep moving, they realized there was a problem. As we’ve said, herds stick together, and this one was no different.
The adult elephants attempted to push the young one free, but no matter how hard they tried, nothing helped. Zero progress was made. The baby elephant wasn’t sinking any deeper, but he wasn’t gaining any ground either.
