    If I were the cameraman, I would have helped it out of the mud, cleaned it off, then maybe taken it to the nearest wildlife center so it would have gotten the best of care. I guess I am just a sucker for wild animal babies….epically if they are related to horses. I know, some people might say that you should just leave it to die, but I would want it to get the necessary care, even if it is from humans. Maybe they have a zebra mother that they could put the foal with until it is old enough to live on it’s own.

    I would have done the same.

    I would have taken the baby and took cvare of it .I wouldn’t of acted like that elephant.Iknow its weird but it would have been easier if the elephant would of tooken care of the zebra instead of its real mother because it would have been safer because elephants are very protective and can get a lot of milk for the baby
