A video doing the rounds on social media shows a baby elephant being helped by its mother as it tries climbing over a barrier. Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Sudha Ramen shared the clip with the caption, "This little Elephant calf was blessed to get the help from its mother. Not every animal are that lucky. Such structures are also the reason for road kills. High time to rethink and plan animal friendly linear projects that pass through d forests and corridors (sic)."

In the video, three elephants can be seen crossing a road and climbing over a barrier. The mother elephant and another elephant crossed the barrier, but the calf was unable to, and failed while attempting it several times.

The mother got across the road, directed the calf and later, with her trunk, helped the baby climb over. 

The video, within a short span of time, went viral and was viewed over thousands of times.
