Sri Lankan wild elephants might not be the largest of the species, but they are the toughest and the strongest in the world. These elephants are regarded as a national treasure on the island of Sri Lanka, and the government has assigned several key teams to keep these elephants safe from any kind of situation they may run into.
This video comes from a rural village close to Polonnaruwa City, which is another conserved site in Sri Lanka. This ancient capital has been a center of development and engineering in those times of kingdoms. This incident was reported to the wildlife department by some villagers as they spotted it limping around in pain. A team of wildlife experts was assigned to this scene, and they arrived in time to treat this elephant with medical supplies.
This elephant is in pain, and it does not trust anything at the moment to seek any relief. The wildlife officers and vets decided to shoot the elephant with a tranquilizer gun armed with sedative darts. Then these officers moved in to treat this elephant as required after ensuring their safety and nonaggression from this elephant. Watch the full footage and let us know about your thoughts on such awesome humans and kind acts to save animals who are direly in need of help.
Realtime fact-checking about Sri Lankan elephant and human conflicts:
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.
