A baby elephant was sent tumbling down a hill after being kicked by the mama elephant at the Melbourne Zoo in Australia.

The baby elephant had brushed up against his mother's leg when the mother kicked the three-month-old down a small hill.

He bounced back quickly, and despite tumbling trunk over tail, zoo keepers say the elephant was not hurt.
