An elephant receives medical treatments with a Tranquillizer gun
This elephant was spotted being weak and sick by the officials during a routine checkup. They called in for a medical team to take care of this issue and treat as required.
These giants require medicine support just like us humans to stay healthy and also to stay resilient any disease they can catch while they roam around the natural habitats they live in. They are shot with vaccines as treatments, and these are done to minimize the risks of approaching a dangerous animal such as an elephant or a larger animal.
Tranquilizer shots for elephant treatments-Wild animals and any other animal would receive vaccines for the same reason that humans do: to prevent and minimize diseases. Vaccinating animals reduces the transmission of microorganisms in the animal population, and is often more affordable for wildlife officers as maintaining such giants like elephants come with a high cost for the state. These wild animals receive vaccines for infectious diseases and also other tranquilizer solutions to sedate them.
This method is non-lethal, and you do not have to worry about animal cruelty. These officers are well aware of what they are doing to these giants a favor by helping them to maintain good health while attending to their medical needs for every sickness and injury they face.
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.
