The human-elephant conflict that has been going on for several decades with the loss of habitat is the main reason for these giants invasion towards human villages.
This Sri Lankan elephant is a very aggressive one and would threaten lives of those who live in the area. Wildlife officers and vets are here to address the issue to take this elephant away towards conservation sites across the island. This elephant must be taken away from the area as some villagers would do anything to save their homes and farmlands from the elephants. Ultimately the elephants getting killed by the traps meant for wild boars and other harvest raiders in the region.

No animal will move towards a corner or a trap with the clear vision, so these experts took their time to pull him back inside the truck with his head turned away. The slow but effective method proved its efficiency as it kept all the trouble and panic away.
Provided with enough food they like to eat, the elephant is safely loaded into the transport truck.
