Problematic situations involving elephants in the Z D canal dates back to the old days when video cameras with colors came out. This recent footage shows how an entire town got together to save two giant Asian elephants from a canal. In this scenario, all the villagers intervened to help with the little they had and called in heavy support from the businesses close by.
These giants have massive forests and grasslands to roam freely without any hindrances in every corner of the island. Yet, they embark on adventures outside their safe zone, especially towards farming villages and canals that look strange to them. These canal projects are now further improved with large stairs for even elephants to climb off as previously it had no large stairs for such animals to climb off.
Everyone involved was very helpful, and they got these giants out of the canal by the end of the day. SHamelessly, they managed to run away towards the jungle, and we recorded them rejoining the herd with a drone camera. Watch the full footage and find out how they managed to free these two Sri Lankan elephants from the infamous ZD canal without getting them hurt.
Sri Lanka and Elephants.
On 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 loved by most of the island’s inhabitants. 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 strength, and they couldn’t go far. That is when they contacted a villager with a tractor to help get this elephant out of this challenging situation.
However, around farming villages where elephants raid crops, many conflicts 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.
