The beautiful island of Sri Lanka is full of Elephants that 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. This particular footage is about an elephant that some villagers spotted as it was found with unimaginable pain due to a cable wire trap that has injured its legs.
The wildlife department was quickly contacted by these officers to come and intervene in order to save this elephant from a life-threatening situation. An elephant leg is very, very important for it to continue its life naturally. Elephants depend on their legs to maintain their balance and to carry their weight. They need to be well fed to maintain their strength to move from area to area as they desire.
The wildlife team arrived at the scene with required medical supplies and ways to sedate this elephant for the treatments it needs to recover quickly. It is again a life-threatening process for these brave officers as well to move closer to a giant like this who can literally end anyone in seconds. Finally, officers were successful in saving this elephant, and it will also take several weeks to recover as those leg wounds will have to heal fully. There are several thousands of elephants in the island of Sri Lanka and the government, together with hardworking and committed department workers, are trying to save every elephant whenever they get a report about a situation. The entire country loves elephants as they are part of their culture and heritage through ancient times.
