These kinds of scenarios unfold every day, and its the duty of these hard-working and brave wildlife officers to save these animals from unfortunate endings. This baby elephant was spotted being sick and layin on the ground by a group of villagers in this rural area. As they tried to approach this baby elephant, a gigantic elephant, too, appeared as it has been secretly protecting this baby.
This is no rescue operation for these villagers, and they immediately contacted the wildlife department to come and intervene with this situation. The officers then arrived at the scene without any delays with a plan to retrieve this baby elephant and logistics to take it away to their closest camp for regular medical supplies.
These experts used firecrackers to scare and chase the older elephant away so they can reach the baby elephant in order to secure it. They will load the baby into this lorry and take it a secure location where they can protect and have access to this baby elephant throughout the day. They will also plan and release the elephant back to the herd when it is fit and well after complete recovery. Watch the full video footage and find out how they managed to pull out this mission with success. We hope to share more updates in the future about this baby elephant.
Sri Lankan elephants and the situation:
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 that are loved by most of the inhabitants of the island. Most educated people in the country continually fight corruption and animal abuse. Especially they continue their resolve to show how important the treasures that elephants are to the state as Sri Lankan elephants are known as the largest and the strongest among Asian elephants.
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.
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.
