WATCH: Footage of six baby elephants escaping a mud pit is bound to make you smile

You love to see it.

Ireland is home to a vast and stunning array of wildlife, but one thing you won't see wandering around these parts are elephants.

Which means we're never likely to see elephants dramatically escaping mud pits, as you're about to see here.

According to Fox News, six baby elephants were trapped in a mud pit in Thailand, before rescuers spent five hours digging a path for them to clamber out.

The head of the park, Prawatsart Chantep, said that rangers found the animals stuck in the pit on Wednesday afternoon.

He also said there were signs that a herd of elephants believed to be related to the trapped infants was circling the area. We're sure they're happy to have them back.

Look at the way they walk off so casually after they get out of the pit. If that doesn't bring a smile to your face, we don't know what will.
