This sweet baby elephant was stranded as it has been missed by its parents during the night. This baby elephant was secured by some of the villagers in a farming village in Anuradhapura. Wildlife officers arrived at the scene to secure this elephant as it will be taken to one of their facilities in the area for this baby elephants safety and health.
These wildlife officers are committed and determined for the family reunion, but it will take some time to find the actual herd that this baby elephant belongs to. If all efforts fail, this baby elephant will join many other young elephants in an elephant orphanage where they will have plenty of space to walk around and be playful with. According to this footage, this baby elephant is still sad, and these officers will also take this baby out for walks and daily baths in a lake or pond close by. It breaks our heart to see these newborn baby elephants being stranded in the jungle, and we only hope to see them with their parents as soon as possible.
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 with farms for water supply.
