An elephant comes to the rescue of one of its babies who is being attacked by a pack of hyenas. The elephant is seen charging at the hyenas to ward them off its offspring. These amazing pictures were captured by American photographer Jayesh Mehta in the Savuti region of the Chobe National Park in Botswana.
