“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.
