An Elephant Calf Gets Washed Away In A Canal, Gets Saved By Heroes
Sri Lanka has a massive network of canals which carry water through the main areas that help agricultural activities. As these Asian wild elephants that roam freely through the jungles towards human villages close to their habitats. Most of these, wild elephants are kept in national parks and conservation parks in order to keep them safe as they are endangered species. But those who roam freely get into trouble very often when they go out looking for new water sources etc.
This time, the incident is about an Asian elephant calf that got stuck inside a canal way near the floodgates. This cute young elephant is struggling with the water pressure, that’s very difficult for everyone to handle due to water levels and pressure Villagers and the wildlife officers gathered around the canal floodgates to get the elephant away from the gates. With such high pressure, it was a very difficult task. They used a couple of large ropes in this matter to take this elephant away from the gates, towards the climbable surface. With the little elephant struggling and its inability to understand the situation, most of those efforts went without any results. After a little while, the team got a caterpillar to pull the tied up little elephant away towards the land. Slowly but gradually they made progress with the situation. Finally, they took the little elephant out, and for some bonus content, you can see the baby elephant chasing the crowd away. They seem to hate bikes a lot. We hope this little elephant will stay from such areas to be safe from facing such dire situations.
