Elephants are beautiful creatures. They are extremely intelligent and fascinating to learn about. They are also stubborn and should never be messed with.

Remember the time an elephant charged Arnold Schwarzenegger’s car while he was on safari? Luckily the big guy was just curious in that situation! But that isn’t alway the case, especially if there is a young elephant around, or the rest of the family.

YouTube user Jasoprakas Debdas captured the moment when a mother elephant protected her family. The mother can be seen chasing off a man on a bicycle, who is watching her. Once he’s realized it’s in his best interest to stay away, she then blocks the road.

In the background, you can see officers watching as the mother elephant waits for her family.

The herd quickly emerges from the right side, having hidden in the bushes there, and she ushers them across the street. No one dawdles, because the mama makes it clear she isn’t waiting around with all the humans in the area. Just watch the video below to see this brave mother looking out for her family!
