A feel Good story: A Weak Elephant gets treated and helped to stand up
In the island paradise of Sri Lanka, Elephants roam the streets and through village areas freely in many parts of the country. The small island nation is full of elephants that are loved by the citizens of the island. Most educated in the country are continually have stood up against corruption and animal abuse especially towards the treasures that elephants are to the state as Sri Lankan elephants are known as the largest and the strongest among Asian elephants.
Sri Lankan Elephants are known to survive passing averages age known to them due to the current regulations and support are given to the wildlife department to keep the elephants safe. There are many aged elephants in the country that requires weekly check-ups on their health, most of them are iconic to some areas and are given with special names by the clergy.
This weak and sick elephant was starving without food for a long time when the villagers spotted him near the borders of a national park in the area.
They immediately contacted the wildlife officers so they can help this elephant recover.
This is a serious situation as this elephant is weak with no strength to stand up. This is why they need to boost this elephant and aid him to stand up using all they got. First, they need to give medicine and foot for the giant to gain some strength and also a lot of water to drink and for its body to cool down.
They were successful and slow with this approach to comfort this dying elephant. Soon as they made the surrounding ground muddy, they moved on to put some support for this elephant. They dragged the elephant slowly out from the place and used a caterpillar to raise him up with some earth and sold used as a buffer between.
They failed to raise the elephant at that very moment and will take this elephant more time to recover due to its weakened self. Officers will be there with the elephant till its treated right, and the village will also provide enough food for this elephant to regain strength.
We humbly invite you to join us with a journey full of love and help to our treasured wild elephants in the paradise island of Sri Lanka.
