A lazy elephant trapped in a farm well saved by Humans. (Ignores all help before)
This situation occurred in a rural region near farmlands away from the capital and urban cities of Sri Lanka. The situation is a problematic one mainly because of this elephant being trapped inside a deep well. This elephant is also a sluggish one with no intention of climbing out or with any attempt.
Citizens discovered this elephant and made the right call to inform the wildlife department about the situation. Officers rushed to the scene with logistics support required to get this elephant out. As soon as they arrived, they even spotted this elephant just standing still even without raising its trunk.
Officers got a path dug out of the mudded pit that was a well before and now they have to use a rope to guide this elephant out. The slow one sure loves to take time and finally decided to make a move.
Some had to tease the elephant with food to get this elephant to move, and it finally worked. Watch the full footage on this rescue operation and let us know about your thoughts.
Sri Lanka and Elephants.
In the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, Elephants roam the streets and through village areas freely in many regions of the country. The small island nation is full of elephants that are loved by most of the inhabitants of the island. Most educated in the country are continually fighting 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.
However, around farming villages where elephants raid crops, many conflicts are happening that have caused casualties to both sides. They have set a lot of fences and electric fences with barriers around many villages and farmlands around national parks and many massive forest reserves. These elephants often run into traps and wells placed along farms for water supply.
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.
