Elephant Mom Rescues Baby from Hyenas (PHOTOS)

An angry mother protecting her child is a force to be reckoned with...even more so when that mom is an elephant!

As the Daily Mail reports, a mother elephant was caught on camera rescuing her young calf from being killed by a pack of hyenas. 

As a group of tourists in the Linyanto bush in Botswana watched, the hyenas separated the baby elephant from the herd and pounced. Thankfully, it was only seconds before the calf's furious mom came storming to the rescue, with legs kicking and trunk swinging.
