In the video, an adult elephant trudges outside the forest carrying the dead calf and carefully walks across, before dropping the carcass on the road. Thereafter, the elephant steps ahead and stands in reticence. The rest of the herd emerges from the forest and collects around the carcass, following which, the elephants proceed together inside the forest with the dead calf.
