NBC NEWS — A wild Asian elephant and its newborn calf were caught on tape recently in southwest China.
The mother and its baby were spotted by a villager in a small rubber tree forest in China's Vunnan province.
The calf had just been born and struggled to stand for quite some time. Eventually it managed to keep its feet under itself and walked into the woods with its mother.
The Asian elephant is listed as endangered and is under first-class national protection in China.
