It is a beautiful day on the island paradise of SriLanka. The wildlife officers are always busy with their medical checkups and rescue operations of elephants and other animals due to the massive scale of forests that cover the entire island every corner.
This giant only got one tusk left, and it is believed that it lost one of those massive tusks during an elephant fight during the musth season. During this period, elephants become hyper-aggressive and seek to dominate in every aspect, especially around female elephants.
When they spotted this elephant for the routine check-up, it was enjoying a bath in the lake close to the national park. Isn’t it a beautiful site to behold? Take a break, relax and enjoy this footage of an epic encouter against one of the biggest tuskers in the world.
If you also think that these officers that risk their lives to help and keep these endangered species deserve more respect, give it a share and let the whole world know.
Sri Lanka and Elephants.
In 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 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.
They tried to drag this elephant out of the muddy pit using their own strength, and they couldn’t go far. That is when they contacted a villager with a tractor to lend them some help to get this elephant out of this challenging situation.
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 farms for water supply.
