Sri Lankan giant elephants roam around difficult terrain areas on the island, and they meet with so many difficult injuries for them to move on with their lives. One of the worst injuries that can happen to an elephant is having a broken limb. Their entire strength and balance depend on their four legs, and it is essential to have all their four legs in healthy condition to have a typical day to survive in the wild or in urban areas in rare cases as they invade cities and villages all the time. This elephant, however, has injured its leg and has decided to move towards this lake to seek some comfort and also to keep its body cool during this painful time.
The wildlife elephants were alarmed by some villagers to take a look at this elephant who happened to be behaving ina very uncomfortable manner. The wildlife life department and its officers know about these situations as they have dealt with, such before. Now, they moved in to help this injured giant with the purpose of calming it down first. They will have to wait till the experts arrive at the scene and until then, they will use anesthetics shot by tranquilizer gun and use other injections to prepare it.

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.
They tried to drag this elephant out of the muddy pit using their own strength, and they couldn’t go far. That is when they contacted a villager with a tractor to lend them some help to get this elephant out of this challenging situation.
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 with farms for water supply.
