The lovely island of Sri Lanka is full of rain forests and grasslands that are home to countless thousands of wild animals and several thousands of elephants. These wild giants get to 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.
An average Asian elephant weighs in above 5400 kilograms. What is your personal best with lifting? Can you imagine loading a giant elephant that weighs a few tons and guiding a wild one towards a truck that looks like a trap to his eyes?
The wildlife department and its experts know the ways towards dealing with such giants and luring them back to trucks without them having any idea. The wildlife department and a special team arrived with their custom-made truck that can transport a giant elephant. They also received a lot of support from the locals in the area and even heavy vehicles to support this mission.
This giant elephant is being relocated, and it’s for the safety of humans and all other animals, including itself in the area. Such giants can rampage across and cause harm to many in the region that actively crosses through rural roads, which are covered by small forests and farmlands. Watch the entire footage to find out how they managed to lure this elephant into this truck. This giant will be taken back to a safer location preserved for wild animals away from human populations.
The love affair between elephants and the island of Sri Lanka.
On 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 people in the country continually fight corruption and animal abuse. Especially they continue their resolve to show how important 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.
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.
