Elephants are some of the smartest animals in the natural world; that’s not just due to their prodigious memory, but also because of their problem-solving skills. Still, doctors in Zimbabwe couldn’t believe it when an elephant named Pretty Boy approached them out of the blue one day, seemingly asking for help.
Right away, they realized he had a serious head wound from a botched kill-shot from a poacher. It seemed like he’d been suffering from the injury for some time and was desperate to find someone who could help him.
They knew they had to act fast or else Pretty Boy would lose his life. So they got right to work to turn his plea for help into a miraculous rescue.
