This endearing scene occurred in front of a group of Indian cyclists when a mother elephant used her trunk to gently assist her calf over a roadside barrier.

The mother elephant and another young elephant, larger than the calf, climbed the barrier with ease, but the baby elephant struggles for almost a minute to get over it in the video.

Truck drivers and cyclists wait patiently until the calf is safely over the barrier.

Video footage shot in Palakkad, India, on July 2, 2020.
