Elephants shield young amid Israeli rocket sirens

In this video obtained from the Safari Park in Ramat Gan, Israel near Tel Aviv, a group of Asian elephants gathered to protect their young as sirens sounded a warning of possible incoming rockets. As the elephants encircled a calf, booms were heard nearby.

It's a behavior also used by elephants in the wild to protect their young, Guy Kfir of the Ramat Gan Safari Park says.
