This first elephant is in trouble because it's the one causing the trouble. It marched into a village in India and began ripping through the wall of a building. To retaliate, the residents threw firecrackers at the poor creature in an attempt to scare it off. Eventually, it wandered away.
Over at Oldonyiro Community Conservancy in Kenya, three helpless elephants were trapped in mud and couldn't get out on their own. Rescuers hauled each elephant out of the mud with a tractor. After some time on solid ground, each elephant was able to recover and stand up on its own. View Now

Let's play a guessing game. (Sorry Sacramentans, you have to sit out for this one because you might already know the answer!) What are those thousands of little jumping beads at the base of this oak tree? If you say monster eggs, you're close!

Still, that monster egg guess wasn't far off from the freaky truth! View Now

It's crazy how some things are just instinctual for animals. For buffalos, climbing isn't one of those things. Folks at Yellowstone National Park spotted a family of buffalo climbing up a hill, but their baby was having a tough time. Apparently, buffalo have to learn by doing with nothing but encouragement from mom and dad.

Imagine being in a place like South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and finding yourself caught in the middle of a gang war! In this case, the gangs are two large groups of feuding baboons. We're not quite sure how they were able to tell who was part of who's gang, since they all look alike. They clearly didn't get the memo that rival gangs should have their own colors OR distinct dance moves.

Pilot Joshua Turner said that the wind mixed with the hot air and gases of the eruption made it quite the dangerous journey for the drone.

Eels, stingrays, krakens, ghost pirate ships, anything! View Now

Hope For Paws are not only in the business of rescuing animals with paws, they rescue those with webbed feet, as well.
