Protective mother elephant trumpets loudly as she chases pack of hungry wild dogs away from her calf

The adult elephant charged at the pack of dogs eyeing up her baby as a late afternoon snack

This is the moment an elephant mum charged at a pack of hungry wild dogs who were eyeing up her calf as a snack.

The clip shows how the protective parent chased the dogs off while trumpeting wildly and her ears flapping in an act of aggression which her calf mimicked.

Accountant Marc de Chalain captured the astonishing scenes at bush camp while on tour with guests in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Marc, 55, said: “While we’ve have spent much time in the bush and have seen a number of animal interactions, this was the first time we’d seen this level of interaction.
