There are thousands of wells used for irrigation activities and natural ponds located around the island of Sri Lanka near its massive forests and grasslands. It is hard not to spot a water source as you walk around the island. Some of these wells are dangerous as they are pretty deep and can drown animals that fall into it. This is what happened to an elephant that roamed out of its natural habitat in search of an adventure to find new land and water sources.
Villagers spotted and heard this troubled elephant drowning as it has been tired, stuck ion the muddy pond for a quite a while. The entire village came to the rescue with some of the wildlife officers to get this elephant out before it drowns when it drains out all its energy. It was a difficult case as they had the risk of this elephant approaching them and dragging them over to the muddy pond.
Brave villagers started digging a path out from the edge of the pond so they can get this elephant to climb off easily without needing heavy vehicles or logistics support. The plan simply turned out to be a story of kindness and simply caring for animals that require humans to save them even during natural causes of accidents in the wild. This proves that humans can still be a positive force to protect nature and all animals for the future.
