When elephants teach us about trolleyology

Train Crushes Elephants Trying to Protect Young (NYT, 23/09/2010):
The baby elephants became trapped as the herd was crossing the rail line in a densely forested area in northern West Bengal State late on Wednesday night. The adults had crowded around the calves to protect them when they were hit, said Atanu Raha, the chief state forest conservator. The two calves were among the dead.
