This situation came into reality when this giant got stuck in the famous canal with no idea on how to get out. Citizens informed the wildlife authorities who went to the scene without any delay. These elephants are always roaming outside the conserved large forest areas allocated for them.
Now don’t get these people wrong here, Sri Lanka does have a lot of forests, grasslands reserved for animals. Would you blame other people when some animal walks miles off their habitat to a city and gets stuck somewhere? No right. 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.
Officers had their own plan developed to put a rope and tires together for this elephant to hold on to. They needed a strong large roap that will support the tons of weight this elephant weighs. This elephant slowly understood that it was for its support to climb off this canal.
The elephant struggled multiple times to climb off as villagers and others made sounds to push this elephant to its limits. The elephant failed a few of the initial attempts. This prompted officers to further improve this rope set up, and they managed to do that. Finally, this elephant was able to climb up using its entire stength pool. Mission successful!
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.
