WATCH: Mother elephant teaching her baby how to cross road in forest

Screengrab from the video

IAS officer Supriya Sahu, currently posted as the head of Environment and Forests Department of Tamil Nadu, has shared a video of a mother elephant carefully guiding her baby across a motor road that runs through the forest.

“Mother elephant seems to be teaching her baby how to cross the road. A sad reality,” the IAS officer has commented.

With increasing development, more highways are traversing through forests and disturbing the natural habit of animals.  The video also shows a car coming down the road which stops to let the elephant and her baby walk across.
