Injured Elephant In The Mud
An injured elephant is lying on its side in a muddy area. He has injured one of his hind legs. He is at great pains, as he hardly moves and is making heavy sounds. A wildlife team is on the scene, and they study the elephant for a while. They then prepare to treat it.
A vet on the team is cleaning the elephant’s ear to give it saline. The elephant continues to make heavy sounds as this is being done. When the cleaning is done, they inject it with saline. After giving it saline, they proceed to take care of the injured leg.
The injury looks like a gunshot wound, the elephant was probably shot by a hunter or a local. The vets carefully clean the wound. The wound is deep, and the vet takes time to get out all the dirt that would have gotten into the flesh.
