Huge elephant gets treated and injected by a rescue team (part 1)
This elephant was found injured lying on its side in pain when the wildlife team arrived at the scene. They immediately made some shading to keep this elephant cool. A train knocked this elephant earlier.
Good news that it was a slight touch with the train.
Vets moved in to conduct the medical check-up on him by examining his ears, trunk, and legs. This elephant is in pain and struggle, continued to show discomfort even during treatments, as he lied weakly on the ground.
The vets began on preparations to give him some medical attention. One member of the team poured water and another wiped it off and cleaned the head. They then vaccinated the elephant to reduce the risk of him getting infected.
They proceeded to tie his legs together in order to make it possible to turn him around. About five of them struggled to get this done. They successfully turned him, with the elephant grunting in pain. Then they washed off his head and gave him a saline solution; in order to hasten the healing process.

After giving saline, the vets administered medicine further. It was an easier task since the elephant couldn’t struggle much. At the end of the video, the wildlife team had to leave the elephant to recover, as it will take time for medicine to take effect.
