Humans to the Rescue! Elephant shot in the leg being saved
An unknown culprit has shot this elephant in the leg, and it is having a hard time walking and running away from threats. Officers found this elephant with a bullet wound as they were conducting routine checks on elephants in the region.
Officers are already at the scene with required medicine and vaccines required to sedate and treat the giant who is in pain. Officers first used the tranquilizer gun with anesthetics to sedate the elephant.
It took a little while for this elephant to calm down as it wanted to rampage through the officers away from everyone back to the jungle. Officers kept the elephant calm and started their treatments during the short window frame available for them to inspect and treat for the time being.
Officers will conduct more medical checks and treat the wound more seriously in the future. They will need to take the bullet out if possible after getting technical assistance to scan its leg. Watch the full footage and see the first step of progress going on with the treatment process. We will share more as we receive more news and footage about this elephant.
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.
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 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.
