They will safely escort this baby elephant back to camp close by where they will protect this baby elephant while they provide all the food and milk it needs to survive and grow.
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 loved by most of the island’s inhabitants. 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 strength, and they couldn’t go far. That is when they contacted a villager with a tractor to help get this elephant out of this challenging situation.
However, around farming villages where elephants raid crops, many conflicts 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.
