So, this baby elephant got trapped within a big muddy well that was used for irrigational purposes near a farming village. How did it even fall into it in the first place? The reason is quite evident because these elephants are always looking out for water sources where ever they go. They are very adventurous creatures and even when they are provided with humungous national parks and conserved zones for them to roam in, they still look for more.
It is seen that many villagers were very helpful and kind enough to bring food from their farm grounds for them to eat before the rescue. Wildlife officers had to call in heavy machinery to dig a path easy enough for this baby elephant to climb up. As soon as they started digging, this baby elephant got worried since it is a new experience for him and it sure isa terrifying experience. The baby elephant is showing visible bruises and small wounds that will need to be treated when the elephant is free. They made sure not to damage the elephant while they had to get their machinery closer to them inside the pit to dig the path.
With the help and support of a combined force to help this elephant out, you can see how happy everyone is soon after this humble baby elephant came out.
Soon after, wildlife officers have to treat its wounds and make sure this elephant is injected well not be infected by anything as it walks freely back to the familiar side of the woods.
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.
