Sick Elephant stuck in the mud saved by real-life heroes
A kind set of farmers and villagers spotted this sick elephant stuck in a mud pit struggling, hungry and weak to get out. They contacted officers of the wildlife department to come to save this young elephant from the sad situation it faces with life-threatening conditions.
Officers required a lot of logistics support and human support to take this giant away from the mud pit to treat it properly. When elephants fall to the ground after being this weak, they need a lot of strength back to stand up, and that is what these officers planned to do with a caterpillar.
They used a big rope to drag this elephant out from the muddy area by tying the rope around the elephant’s leg. They were partly successful and gave some medicine and saline water for it to regain some strength. They soon used the caterpillar to help this elephant stand up so it can be a little active and eat all the food.
*Initial efforts failed, but they gave more saline water for this elephant to regain strength. Soon after, this elephant was able to stand up and move. Officers will be there to provide for this elephant with treatments, food and will bring a water bowser to give it a shower and plenty of water to drink soon.
