It's Sunday, which means tomorrow it is back to work and, on top of it, the weather is dull and dreary too. If these thoughts have you feeling blue, we have just what you need to brighten up your mood and leave you smiling. Sheldrick Wildlife, a rehabilitation sanctuary for elephants in Kenya, posted a video of their baby elephants on Twitter. The video was posted on July 31, and has since gone viral. It has been liked 2.6k times and garnered over 14,000 views. The sanctuary captioned the video, “Waste not, want not — the nursery orphans are always plotting a milk heist.”
In the video, a herd of little baby elephants is busy clamouring over each other with their trunks. The cute elephants are attempting to grab a wheelbarrow filled with bottles of milk for them.
Watch the video here:
The viral video received several comments with Twitter users posting hilarious and awestruck reactions to the actions of the little milk thieves.
One user wrote, “That has to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen! I marvel that the SWT has developed a formula that not only has all the nutrients the babies need but is clearly delicious as well.”

There was this one user who had “watched at least seven different movies on baby elephants and how they imprint on humans that feed them”. The user added that it felt good that the “babies are taken care of”.
Yes those baby elephants love to drink out of the bottles. I think I've watched at least seven different movies on baby elephants and how they imprint on humans that feed them etc and will literally die if the human leaves. Horrible but good to know babies are taken care of.— Lorry (@Spirit_force97) August 1, 2021
One user hilariously offered to “secretly help” the baby elephants “execute the milk heist”.
