Hulian alkaa, kun norsulauma poikasineen valtaa parhaat paikat.

Why is this comitative, BTW?

English translation:wtih their young ones
Explanation:
Not sure what a baby elephant is in proper English:-(, but... Comitative tells with something/somebody, and it is not all that commonly used in everyday Finnish anymore. Instead, in normal everyday Finnish people use "jonkin/jonkun kanssa", very much the same way as "with" is used in English. In very formal writing comitative can still be seen.
